The seventieth edition of the San Sebastian Film Festival already has winners and the gold shell to the best film is for ‘The Kings of the world‘, by Colombian Laura Mora.
The story is told from their homeland and tells how a group of marginalized young people from Medellin seeks dignify their existence recovering the promised land that, one day not so far away, his grandparents inhabited.
The verdict comes after ten days of packed streets, a lot of red carpet and a constant parade of celebrities from the world of cinema such as Penélope Cruz or Olivia Wild and even music.
The jury, which was ultimately unable to preside over Glenn Close for family reasons, awarded the award to the best actress to the Spanish Carla Quílez for her leading role in ‘La Maternal’.
A distinction that it shares with the French Paul Kircherwhich defends the central character of the French ‘Winter boy’.
Everything was revealed at the closing gala of the first post-pandemic edition of the festival, held on the same day as Ana de Armas’ long-awaited arrival in a city that was visited by many faces from Spanish and international cinema.
Among them, Ricardo Darín, whom we could see presenting ‘Argentina 1985’, winner of the audience award. This has been the big comeback of one of our most relevant dates with celluloid in which the biggest prize, without a doubt, has been being able to forget about the restrictions and go back to seeing the full cinema.
