Dies d'agost

d. Marc Recha
c. Spain
y. 2006

"The feature-essay film-documentary hybrid August Days traces the experiences of Marc (writer/director Marc Recha) -- a writer living in Spain who hits a dead end while trying to create an artistic work based on the memoirs of a dead friend -- and Marc's twin brother, David (David Recha). Despondent and frustrated, Marc concedes to David's request to set the project aside and accompany him on a cross-country trip through Catalonia. Along the way, the partially estranged siblings re-cement old ties with one another, experience a string of chance encounters with strangers, and hear enchanting and eccentric local yarns, such as a tale about a man-eating whiskered catfish who prowls the bottom of a nearby Spanish lake. As the men travel, the indigenous country that surrounds them sends memories flooding back and begins to color and define the shifting emotional landscape of their relationship. The events that unfold in the film actually happened to the Rechas and are now re-created onscreen with touching insights and great poignancy. August Days was screened at the 2006 New York Film Festival, at the Film Society of Lincoln Center." (AMG)
