November 20 @ 8h00 – 17h00
As part of the Resonance screenings of the 2023 Art & Industry Triennial, the Fresnoy Studio International is screening Miguel Gomes’ film Ce cher mois d’août as part of Turbulences.
Miguel Gomes, Ce cher mois d’août (Dear August), 2008, 150′.
Miguel Gomes films a region of mountainous Portugal during the month of August, when the population increases tenfold and activities multiply: people return home, shoot off fireworks, control fires, sing karaoke, throw themselves off bridges, hunt wild boar, drink beer and have children, as the filmmaker puts it.
