Our thanks to Chrissie for bringing us this piece from Variety on the Eastern Promises premiere at the San Sebastian Festival in Spain.

We have also been able to confirm that Viggo is planning to attend. The actual date is still up in the air, but appears to be somewhere close to September 20.
Quote:
Two London-set thrillers from vet auteurs, David Cronenberg's "Eastern Promises" and Michael Radford's "Flawless," will bookend the 55th San Sebastian Festival, which runs Sept. 20-29.

Opening the fest and its main competition, Cronenberg's "Promises" reteams the Canadian auteur with "History of Violence" star Viggo Mortensen, who plays a Russian mobster. Naomi Watts co-stars.

Curtain-raising at San Sebastian, the biggest fest in the Spanish-speaking world, adds to a high fest presence for the BBC-Focus produced "Promises," which also screens as a Gala at Toronto and opens the London Film Fest in October.

Twilight of Empire

by Scott Thill

Back in 2003, my wife and I were lucky enough to work with Viggo Mortensen and his indie publisher Perceval Press on a book calling out the war in Iraq as a mammoth clusterbungle before it really got started. It was called Twilight of Empire: Responses to Occupation. Since its publication, those of us who have been criticizing the Bush administration as crusading cash grabbers have been validated by the very people who gave them the green light to bomb the living daylights out of Baghdad...

...I'm proud to say that Viggo is now handing out Twilight of Empire for free at Perceval, so log on and grab yours. The essays from ambassador Joseph Wilson, disaster capitalism theorist Naomi Klein, Democracy Now's Amy Goodman, HuffPo contributor Mark Levine and many others (including Howard Zinn, who wrote the new edition's introduction) are charged exercises in conscientious objection, which grow more relevant as time passes and Iraq slipstreams into hyperreal madness.
