San Sebastian Film Fest 2018: Competition Titles

Claire Denis’ “High Life,” Kim Jee-woon’s “Illang: the Wolf Brigade” and Naomi Kawase’s “Vision” are among the first seven titles competing for the 2018 San Sebastian Film Festival’s top Golden Shell.

Also making the main competition cut are Valeria Sarmiento’s “The Black Book” and three  gifted directors: Austria’s Markus Schleinzer, Argentina’s Benjamín Naishtat and Switzerland’s Simon Jaquemet.

Other competition contenders will be announced, including the Spanish titles which often take major prizes.

Some of the first titles paint the picture of a troubled world shook to its foundations by highly convulsive or dramatic times. The French Revolution (“The Black Book”), a future Korea facing reunification, relationships, characters or even humanity is threatened, by the build of covert police violence (“Illang,” “Rojo”) , the need for spiritual renewal (“Vision”), or the end of the human race (“High Life”).

Zeitgeist Films:

These are times when not just government but humanity is being tested, some of the prominent titles at San Sebastian seem to saying.
