Music doc added to fest's Zabaltegi Specials

The Spanish fest rounded out its Zabaltegi Specials on Tuesday, adding 10 pics to the six titles already announced.

Other highlights include Frederick Wiseman’s doc “Crazy Horse” on the legendary cabaret, and Juan Carlos Rulfo’s “Carriere. 250 metros,” about Jean-Claude Carriere, Luis Bunuel’s regular scribe.

Zabaltegi will also screen Moroccan Leila Kilani’s fiction debut, “On the Plank,” which got the Cinema in Motion award last year, and Dominik Moll’s 18th century-set suspenser “The Monk,” a Spanish-French co-production based on Matthew Lewis’ Gothic novel.

Antoine Delevaux and Joann Sfar’s toon “The Rabbi’s Cat,” and Justin Kurzel’s psychological crime thriller “Snowtown” add diversity to Zabaltegi.
