San Sebastian unveils international titles

Competition lineup includes Ozon, Sorin

MADRID

The 60th San Sebastian Festival Thursday unveiled the first five international films that will vie for a Golden Shell in competition.

They are Francois Ozon’s “In the House,” Carlos Sorin’s “Fishing Days,” Ziad Doueiri’s “The Attack,” Emily Tang’s “All Apologies” and “The Dead and the Living,” by Barbara Albert.

A relationship thriller about a gifted schoolboy and his teacher, “House” marks French helmer-scribe Ozon’s return to San Sebastian after snagging the Special Jury Award in 2009 with drama “Hideaway.” It stars Kristin Scott Thomas and Emmanuelle Seigner. Wild Bunch handles international sales.

Argentina’s Sorin presents “Fishing Days,” about a 50-year-old ex-alcoholic who, advised to take up a hobby in order to dry out, moves to a Patagonian hamlet where his daughter lives.

“The Attack,” Lebanese director Doueiri’s third film, adapts Yasmina Khadra’s bestseller about the moral dilemma faced by an Arab-Israeli surgeon whose wife has carried out a deadly suicide bombing.

World preeming at San Sebastian, Austrian filmmaker Albert’s “The Dead and the Living” follows a young woman’s journey into her family’s past in WWII. Films Distribution reps sales.

In “All Apologies,” helmed by China’s Tang (“Perfect Life”), a man pressures a woman to give him a child after her husband kills his son in an accident.

San Sebastian, the biggest fest in the Spanish-speaking world, runs Sept. 21-29.
