The former Greek Finance Minister, Yanis Varoufakis, will not attend the screening of Adults in the Room in San Sebastian

Yanis Varoufakis will not attend the Costa-Gavras Donostia Award gala

José Luis Rebordinos, the Festival Director, will present the award to the filmmaker prior to the screening of his film ‘Adults in the Room’



The former Greek Finance Minister, Yanis Varoufakis, will not attend the screening of Adults in the Room, to take place tomorrow following the gala at which the Donostia Award will be presented to the person responsible for its making, Costa-Gavras. The San Sebastian Festival Director, José Luis Rebordinos, will personally present the filmmaker with the Festival’s highest honorary distinction.

Due to a last-minute commitment, Varoufakis will be unable to visit San Sebastian tomorrow, as planned, to participate in the presentation of the film based on his book of memoires. However, we will be accompanied by Christos Loulis, the actor who plays the Greek politician on the big screen; Valeria Golino, who embodies his wife, Danae Stratou, and Alexandros Bourdoumis, who plays the part of the former president Alexis Tsipras.

The star of the day will be Costa-Gavras (Loutra-Iraias, 1933), the French filmmaker of Greek origin whom the Festival wishes to acknowledge as one of the leading exponents of political and committed cinema. He is the author of films such as Z (1969), Missing (1981), Music Box (1989), Le couperet (The Axe, 2004) and Le capital (Capital, 2012).

In Adults in the Room, which will open in cinemas on October 18, he looks at the fleeting mandate of Yanis Varoufakis as Finance Minister during the first six months of 2015, at the height of the Greek financial crisis. The film is a “tragedy” in the classic sense of the term and portrays a group of people “trapped in an inhuman network of power” and in a “brutal circle of Eurogroup meetings, which imposed on Greece a dictatorship of austerity”.
