"August Winds" amazing review on the latest edition of Sight&Sound with a note on the sound design!! 2014-09-08


According to the latest edition of Sight & Sound | The International Film Magazine this year's discovery at the Locarno Film Festival (famous for discovering new talent) was Ventos de Agosto / August Winds!

"...a dreamy, mysterious contemplation of death and the passing of time set in an isolated village on Brazil's coast. Mascaro seamlessly blends nonfiction observation of rural life and the natural world with quiet drama [...] The result was an oneiric but not too enigmatic tale, with remarkable sound design and imagery."

Once again..amazing film..amazing team!!!=)

The final stage of the sound post process of Gabriel Mascaro's latest feature film took place in Recife, Brazil at the PortoMedia's estudios. A huge experience and a beautiful film!
