Our Beloved Month of August
Aquele Querido Mês de Agosto

Director: MIGUEL GOMES
In the heart of Portugal, amid the mountains, the month of August is abuzz with people and activity. Emigrants return home, set off fireworks, fight fires, sing karaoke, hurl themselves from bridges, hunt wild boar, drink beer, make babies. The film traces the affective relationship between the father, the daughter and her cousin, all musicians in a dance band. So, love and music then.
