SAN SEBASTIAN, SPAIN (AP) - The Spanish film “Los Pasos Dobles” (“Double Steps”) has received this year’s top award at Spain’s San Sebastian Film Festival.

The movie, directed by Isaki Lacuesta, tells the tale of Spanish artist Miquel Barcelo’s search for paintings supposedly hidden in Mali, mixing documentary and fiction.

Also honored Saturday was the Greek film “Adikos Kosmos” (“Unjust World”), with Filoppos Tsitos named best director and Antonis Kafetzopoulos as best actor.

The festival’s special jury prize was given to French actress and director Julie Delpy for her film “Le Skylab.”

Frances McDormand, the Oscar winning actress who starred in “Fargo,” chaired the film festival’s jury.
