Alto do MInho

This spellbinding film dispenses with not only dialogue but also most other conventions of documentary filmmaking to achieve an evocative portrait of the daily life and festivities in the Alto de Minho mountains of northern Portugal. Director Miguel Filgueiras, an artist from the area, has created an extended, almost surreal montage of the region’s cultural heritage. The beauty and power of his imagery combine with the uniqueness of his approach to make Alto do Minho an original tour de force.


A wild and boisterous film, Rougarouing takes its title from the Cajun term for "dangerous carousing. " The phrase is apt: this portrait of a bizarre tradition, rooted in a medieval “festival of begging,” is full of loud, muddy merrymaking in spectacular masks and costumes.
