He is back with Zeroville, a movie about the tumultuous 1960s in Hollywood, starring the director himself together with his usual posse of actors, headed up by his brother Dave Franco and Seth Rogen. Going up against this – at first glance – solid contender in the main section of the Basque gathering are Berlin-born actress-director Ina Weisse (The Architect [+lire aussi :

This list of films in the Official Section of San Sebastián 2019 is rounded off – although it is still open to more additions – by the Canadian production And the Birds Rained Down, an adaptation of Jocelyne Saucier’s novel of the same name by filmmaker Louise Archambault; and the Mexican title Workforce, the feature debut by David Zonana, which addresses job insecurity and stars non-professional actors.

Cineuropa will be sure to keep you up to date with the rest of the titles selected for the festival, which will be unveiled gradually over the coming weeks.
