San Sebastian to fete Gilliam

Retro the third scheduled sidebar at 46th fest

MADRID — The 46th San Sebastian Film Festival will dedicate a retrospective to the films and animation work of former Monty Python member and film director Terry Gilliam (“Brazil,” “The Adventures of Baron Munchausen,” “The Fisher King,” “12 Monkeys,” “Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas”).

“Gilliam sums up the qualities vindicated by these type of retrospectives: he’s independent, heterodox and a risk taker,” a festival statement said.

The Gilliam retro is the third sidebar now slated for this year’s San Sebastian Fest, which will take place Sept. 17-26.

San Sebastian will also showcase 40 films of Japanese helmer Mikio Naruse and run a section called “Hunger, Humor and Fantasy” devoted to forgotten masterpieces of Italian neo realism.
