Death in August

Bruno Abib

Portugal
2023, 16'

A traumatic event leads to different ways of reacting among members of a group of friends. While some revolt, others move away from reality, looking for comfort in a virtual world.

They say we see what we believe. Reality is different for each one of us, according to the beliefs that conform our perception. The traumatic memory of the death by drowning of a teenager haunts a group of friends. A portrait of the peripheral summer where the resistance to police violence goes hand in hand with the refuge found in video games. The ambivalence of this coming of age and the way it inhabits the physical spaces but also the ethereal spaces contradicts the conventional stereotypes of the genre. Is it fireworks or an explosion? (Susana Santos Rodrigues)
