Argentinian star Ricardo Darín will receive a Donostia Award on September 26 at the 65th edition of the San Sebastian Film Festival, in the framework of presentation of his latest film The Summit (La cordillera). The award recognises the career of the 60-year-old star, who has worked with filmmakers including Adolfo Aristarain, Juan José Campanella, Fabián Bielinsky, Fernando Trueba, Pablo Trapero and Cesc Gay.

The Summit, written and directed by Santiago Mitre, is set at a Latin American presidential summit in Chile. Darín stars alongside Dolores Fonzi, Érica Rivas, Elena Anaya, Daniel Giménez Cacho, Alfredo Castro, Paulina García and Christian Slater. It had it's premiere in the Un Certain Regard section in Cannes.

Darín is a regular attender of San Sebastian and has already been honoured by the festival, taking home the acting Silver Shell in 2015 for [filmid=28105]Truman[/film], about a terminally ill man spending four days with a friend.

The star started acting in TV series when he was just five years old and his first film role came in 1979. His role in Fabián Bielinsky's directorial debut Nine Queens (Nueve Reinas) began to earn him international recognition, which was further cemented with the likes of The Aura (El Aura) and Lucía Puenzo's XXY.

He has been in three films that were nominated for the Best Foreign Language film at the Oscars - Son Of The Bride, The Secret In Their Eyes and Moon Of Avellaneda.
