Synopsis

In the heart of Portugal, amid the mountains, the month of August is abuzz with people and activity. As emigrants set off fireworks and sing karaoke, a strange relationship between a father, a daughter, and a nephew in a pop band unfolds.

Our take

Directed by the great Miguel Gomes, Our Beloved Month of August is an ethnographic portrait of a small town in the mountains of Portugal. Much like his much celebrated 2012 effort Tabu, here documentary and fiction collide to form a colorful and unique portrait of place.
