. Boasting a cast that includes Luc Bruchez, Laetitia Casta, Thibaut Evrard, Clémence Poésy, Fred Hotier, Patrick Descamps, Lisa Harder and Sasha Gravat Harsh, the new opus by the director (who wrote the screenplay together with Joanne Giger) is set during a heatwave and a drought in the summer of 1976. Under the unforgiving sun, Gus is about to leave his 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. Interestingly, the cinematography was entrusted to Christophe Beaucarne (who garnered five nominations for the César Award in his category between 2010 and 2018). Beyond the Horizon was produced by Switzerland’s Box Productions and Belgium’s Entre Chien et Loup, with backing from RTS, RTBF, Teleclub and BeTv, among other sources.
