San Sebastian tribute for Garrel

Fest plans retrospective for French director

MADRID — French auteur Philippe Garrel will be the subject of a retrospective at the 55th San Sebastian Intl. Film Festival, which runs Sept. 20 – 29.

The helmer has stayed true to his Nouvelle Vague origins; his films underscore his passion and obsession for New Wave aesthetics, films about film-making, experimentation, drugs, women, and his late German chanteuse wife Nico.

Garrel has received recent award recognition. His latest film, “Regular Lovers,” a recreation of 1968 Paris, won a Silver Lion director award at Venice in 2005.

“Wild Innocence,” about a helmer making a film against drug addiction, who is forced to raise production coin from drug dealers, took a Fipresci prize at Venice in 2001.

The tribute will introduce Garrel for Spanish audiences. Despite a 43-year-career, stretching back to 1964 debut “Les Enfants Desaccordes,” Garrel’s films have not received significant Spanish commercial distribution.
