Shot in 3D, August is loosely based on the life and work of Cologne photographer August Sander (1876-1964). In surreal and dreamy sequences, it imagines the artist at the end of his life, nearly blind and haunted by the death of his son, and by the figures he has photographed. As in his other films, director Fast tells a story of trauma, war and relationships; with clarity of images and ambivalence of meaning.
