VIRTUAL CINEMA | BEYOND THE HORIZON
Dir. Delphine Lehericey | Switzerland / Belgium | 2018 | 90m English subtitles
The drought of 1976. Under the unforgiving sun, Gus is about to leave childhood behind. Nature withers, emotions swell, the family unit splinters; everything splits and cracks until the unthinkable occurs: the eagerly anticipated thunderstorms will sweep across the tired and worn countryside, washing a whole world away. A brilliant and merciless evocation of the once-in-a-century 1976 heatwave and its consequences for one French farming family.
‘The atmospheric picture is a rural coming-of-ager that manages to reinvigorate a decidedly overstocked cinematic subgenre.’
NEIL YOUNG, THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER
