San Sebastian Film Festival
The American actress presents this Friday the film ‘The Eyes of Tamy Faye’, which is competing in the Official Selection of Zinemaldia
Jessica Chastain yesterday joined the list of stars of the seventh art that have paraded these days on the red carpet of the Zinemaldia. The versatile American actress, who recently premiered her miniseries ‘Scenes of a marriage’, arrived yesterday in the capital of San Sebastian and today presents her latest film, ‘The Eyes of tamy Faye’, which is competing in the Official Section of the Film Festival of Saint Sebastian. Smiling and radiant, this morning the American was seen on the Kursaal terraces and posed in the traditional photocall with the rest of the film’s castmates.
‘The Eyes of Tamy Faye’ is an intimate glimpse into the extraordinary rise, fall and redemption of evangelist telepreacher Tammy Faye Bakker. In the 1970s and 1980s, Tammy Faye and her husband, Jim Bakker, set up the world’s largest network of religious networks, as well as a theme park, virtually out of nowhere, and enjoyed immense popularity for their messages from love, acceptance and prosperity. Tammy Faye was legendary for her indestructible eyelashes, her original way of singing and her generosity in welcoming people of all kinds. But it wasn’t long before financial irregularities, rivalries and intrigues, and scandals toppled a meticulously built empire.
The film, directed by Michael Showalter, stars Jessica Chastain and Andrew Garfield and will compete for the Golden Shell in this edition of Zinemaldia, whose ruling will be announced tomorrow at the traditional closing ceremony.
