Viggo Mortensen's career to be honored by Spanish festival

MADRID (AP) - The career of Viggo Mortensen, Aragorn in the popular trilogy "Lord of the Rings" and protagonist of the Oscar-winning "Green Book" will be recognized at this year's San Sebastian Film Festival.
The festival announced on Monday that this year's recipient of the Donostia Award will be Mortensen. The organizers are currently planning to hold the festival as usual, with film stars from all over the world flying in. Spain has lifted most of its restrictions on the coronavirus pandemic, which killed more than 28,000 people in the country.
The Danish-American actor will present the European premiere of Falling, his directorial debut, at the prestigious festival in Northern Spain from September 18-26.
The film closed the Sundance Festival and was selected for the Cannes Festival. Lance Henriksen plays the role of an aging father, whose world collides with that of his estranged, homosexual son, who is played by Mortensen himself.
The 61-year-old Mortensen has appeared in around 50 films in a career spanning more than three decades. He has been nominated for Oscars three times - for "Eastern Promises", "Captain Fantastic" and "Green Book", in which he portrays the biased driver of the classical pianist Don Shirley, who is played by Mahershala Ali during a tour of the depths south in the early 1960s.
