Festival tauts 'New Nordic' section
Peter Schonau Fog’s “The Art of Crying,” Pernille Fischer Christensen’s “A Soap” and Aleksi Salmenpera’s “A Man’s Job” are all set to unspool as part of the San Sebastian Film Festival’s Cold Fever section, devoted to new Nordic cinema.
Other films in the sidebar announced Friday include Tomas Alfredson’s “Four Shades of Brown”; Bard Breien’s “The Art of Negative Thinking”; “Parents” and “Children,” both helmed by Ragnar Bragason; and Jens Lien’s “The Bothersome Man.”
Cold Fever aims to explore new trends in contemporary post-Dogma filmmaking. Showcase includes 38 movies from Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Finland and Iceland, and will be accompanied by a book, written by Danish writer-film critic Christian Monggaard.
Cold Fever is one of the three sidebars announced by the festival. The other two are a tribute to Philippe Garrel and a Henry King retro.
San Sebastian fest runs Sept. 20-29.
