‘Basterds’ opens San Sebastian sidebar

Zabaltegi-Pearls will feature many Cannes pics

MADRID — Quentin Tarantino’s “Inglourious Basterds” will open the San Sebastian Film Festival’s Zabaltegi-Pearls sidebar, the Spanish event’s panorama of recent fest faves.

Selection is a sign of Tarantino’s popularity in Spain: Zabaltegi-Pearls opened last year with “Vicky Cristina Barcelona,” helmed by another of the country’s favorite auteurs, Woody Allen, who this year will be represented by Tribeca opener “Whatever Works.”

Zabaltegi-Pearls will feature many Cannes competition players, including Jacques Audiard’s Grand Prix winner “A Prophet,” Ang Lee’s “Woodstock,” Johnnie To’s “Vengeance” and Bong Joon-ho’s “Mother.”

Iran’s Bahman Ghobadi, a two-time winner of San Sebastian’s Golden Shell award for film, will play Zabaltegi-Pearls with Iran underground music scene tale “No One Knows About Persian Cats,” a standout in a strong Cannes Un Certain Regard this year, where it shared the special jury prize.

Zabaltegi-Pearls also features “Yuki and Nina,” from Nobuhiro Suwa and Hippolyte Girardot, which played in Directors’ Fortnight.

Other sidebar pics include Jim Jarmusch’s “The Limits of Control”; Lee Daniels’ Sundance grand jury and audience award winner “Precious: Based on the Novel ‘Push’ by Sapphire”; and Oliver Hirschbiegel’s “Five Minutes of Heaven,” which took directing and screenwriting plaudits at Sundance in its World Cinema section.

The 57th San Sebastian fest runs Sept. 18-26.
