Miguel Gomes

Portugal, Italy, France / 2024 / Colour and B&W / 128
Rangoon, Burma, 1917. Edward, an official of the British Empire, runs away on the day he is to marry his fiancée Molly. Determined to get married, Molly sets off in search of Edward, following in the footsteps of his Grand Tour across Asia.
Miguel Gomes is one of the major auteurs of contemporary cinema. Our Beloved Month of August, Tabu, Arabian Nights… His films, all presented at FIDMarseille, of which he is a faithful companion, have marked their time by combining a formal splendor inherited from classical cinema with a narrative inventiveness rooted in the contemporary.
We’re delighted to welcome him back to Marseille with the dizzying and romantic Grand Tour (Cannes Film Festival Award for Best Director 2024).

Lead actress Crista Alfaiate will be there during the night.
