Our Beloved Month of August

Miguel Gomes, Portugal, 2008, 150'

A fictional-documentary hybrid depiction of life in a remote village in the Portuguese mountains during the month of August. Local inhabitants are busy merrymaking, glorifying life, but also fighting fire, hunting wild boars, drinking and organising karaoke. An ethnographic cross-section of a place, which gradually turns into a meta-film, following the director and the film crew in their impressions of the area, mutual quarrels, arguments and anxieties.
