We are delighted to announce that our new acquisition PLAYGROUND has been selected for the 64th edition of the San Sebastian Film Festival’s Official Selection. In addition, with PLAYGROUND’s selection, LATIDO add’s its third acquisition selected for San Sebastian Film Festival including MAY GOD SAVE US also in Official Selection and RARA at Horizontes Latinos.
This major “A” category festival, held on between the 16th and the 24 of September will host Bartosz Kowalski’s fiction feature debut PLAYGROUND world premiere. Moreover, this selection for San Sebastian marks a promising career for a director who shot before two documentaries for HBO Europe and is called to drive a renaissance in Polish filmmaking.
In fact, Polish freshman Kowalski’s disturbing portrait of irrational teenage pathology, is shaped up as one of the talking points of the festival. A social horror film set around an end-of-year school speech day, at least one scene of PLAYGROUND will likely prove unwatchable for part of San Sebastian’s audiences.
