San Sebastian to Honor Argentine Actor Ricardo Darin With Lifetime Award

San Sebastian Awards - H 2016

He starred in 'Wild Tales,' 'Son of the Bride' and Oscar-winning 'The Secret in Their Eyes.'

Argentina’s internationally most acclaimed actor, Ricardo Darin, will receive the Donostia Award for Lifetime Achievement at the 65th San Sebastian International Film Festival in September, organizers said Wednesday. The ceremony will take place Sept. 26.

Darin’s credits read like a list of must-watch Latin American cinema, including three films nominated for Academy Awards: Son of the Bride, Wild Tales and The Secret in Their Eyes, which won the 2009 Foreign Language category.

Darin is a regular at San Sebastian, where he won the Silver Shell for his role in Truman in 2015. This year he will present his latest work, The Summit, directed by Santiago Mitre and set in a Latin American presidential summit in Chile. Summit, which will be released in Spain by Warner on Sept. 29, is a co-production between K&S Films and La Union de los Rios (Argentina), MOD Producciones (Spain) and Maneki Films (France).

San Sebastian runs Sept. 22-30 in Spain’s northern Basque region.
