Jacques Becker - A San Sebastian Film Festival retrospective and publication

Jacques Becker
Among my favourite French directors, the author of Goupi Mains Rouges (1943), Casque d'or (1952), Edouard and Caroline (1951) Touchez-pas au Grisbi (1954) and the final masterpiece Le Trou (1960), is the subject of a retrospective and a publication from the San Sebastian Film Festival. Adrian Martin is a contributor to the book and this note below is pillaged from his Facebook page.

Received my copy today of a book to which I have proudly contributed: JACQUES BECKER, eds. Quim Casas & Ana Cristina Iriarte. IMPORTANT NOTE: it's a handsome, bi-lingual publication, everything is in both Spanish and English, as is usual with the fine books that accompany San Sebastián Film Festival retrospectives. Other fine writers in it include Carlos LosillaImma Merino, Joan Pons, Àngel QuintanaEulàlia Iglesias Huix, Carlos Carlos F. HerederoSergi Sánchez and more !!
