Fokua : Zabaltegi-Tabakalera + Plus 2019
What if the film festival was to never end? Zabaltegi-Tabakalera + PLUS expands the most open section of the festival for three months (October, November, and December). The aim is to present prior work by some of the directors present in the section and propose dialogues with the history of cinema.
During the month of October, emphasis will be placed on two of the films presented at the San Sebastián Film Festival:
The documentary by Callisto McNulty entitled Delphine et Carole, insoumuses gives us a lead-in to discuss the work and life of two of the feminist artists and militants who were most fundamental to the 1970s: director Carole Roussopoulos and actress and director Delphine Seyrig. This review also allows us to once again put our Focus entitled "From the Beginning" back into swing. Histories of Feminist Cinema.
The premiere after the Cannes Film Festival of the new film by the Chinese director Diao Yinan entitled Nan Fang Che Zhan De Ju Hui (The Wild Goose Lake) allows us to present a retrospective of one of those names that are dictating the course of genre filmmaking (China noir) at international film festivals.
