San Sebastian to honor Schroeder

Helmer-producer to be feted with retrospective

MADRID — September’s 54th San Sebastian Intl. Film Festival will honor French director and producer Barbet Schroeder with a retrospective.

While Schroeder is best known for upscale thrillers such as “Reversal of Fortune” (1990), which won him an Academy directing nom, and the more commercial “Single White Female” (1992), he also was a singular figure in France’s Nouvelle Vague, acting in Jean-Luc Godard’s “The Riflemen” (1963), producing the early films of Eric Rohmer including “My Night at Maud’s” (1969) from Les Films du Losange, and directing his own films such as his censored sex and drugs debut “More” (1976) and sado-masochism study “Mistress” (1976).

After 16 years making U.S. films, including the Charles Bukowski co-written “Barfly” (1987) and, most notably, thriller “Kiss of Death” (1995), Schroeder hit the road to shoot “Our Lady of the Assassins” (2000) in Colombia, a country he lived in from the ages of 6 and 10.

Fest runs Sept. 21-30.
