tempe festival

6

Every May since 1954, the city of Girona, Catalonia, celebrates the festival Girona, Temps de Flors (“Girona, time of flowers”). During a week, the city is decorated with flowers, with different designs every year.

During the festival, the city also offers many cutural activities such as concerts, art and photography expositions and competitions, artistic workshops, traditional Catalan dance performances, nocturn visits to museums and historical landmarks, and a diada castellera, among others.

This year (2017), the festival lasts from the 13th to the 21st of May.

my moms original home city in Mexico already kicked off their celebrations for Día De Los Muertos tonight.

they celebrate it for an entire week and have been doing it their way for ages now, tradition for them goes:

  • Oct 28- (This all happens in the Panteón -cemetery) The lighting of the first light (a white candle) and a white flower. Then they cheer for the spirit/souls that are travelling alone.
  • Oct 29- Another candle is lit, and a glass of water is laid down. This is dedicated to those who died in abandoned and forgotten places and were thus never found.
  • Oct 30- A new candle is lit, alongside another glass of water, this time accompanied with bolio (ithink the closest similar food thing i can think of is like a dinner roll?? only a Lot bigger and tbh better tasting) This one is for those who died in an accident, or haven’t eaten.
  • Oct 31- Process repeats, new candle, glass of water, white bread, and this time fruit is offered as well. (oranges and guavas are most customary) This goes for the dead of the dead (AKA your ancestors/great-grandparents)
  • Nov 1- Official day is here, Day of the Dead day 1: This day is dedicated to the departed children. Anyone who died young is celebrated, remembered, and honored on this date. All of the food is mainly sweet, pumpkins, guava, chocolate, candy in general, honey, and flowers to make the place a bright happy place for them. On personal graves or altars at home, they’re customized to what the child/children enjoyed and loved when they were still alive. A lot of toys, books, and all things alike are brought and offered in hopes that they will enjoy their day.
  • Nov 2- Official Day of the Dead day 2: This one generally goes out to all the elder people/adults. Thus the offerings are a little more catered to their likings, beer and cigarettes are usually there waiting. Of course they still have the standard flowers, food, and incense around so that they feel welcome as well.
  • Nov 3- The last white candle is lit, as incense slowly fades in and out into the night, there’s a final prayer and the still alive family members ask the departed to return again the following year.
Jour 6 à Cannes : sifflets pour Mise à mort du cerf sacré , Mads Mikkelsen sur la plage du Majestic
24 H CROISETTE - Chaque jour, la rédaction du Figaro revient sur les temps forts du 70e Festival de Cannes, des projections de Happy End et du nouveau film de Yorgos Lanthimos aux apparitions people.

Dimanche 21 mai, les festivaliers découvraient le très attendu Happy End . Le titre sonne comme une boutade quand on connaît la filmographie de Michael Haneke. Amour ou encore Le Ruban blanc ne sont pas franchement des comédies. Déjà détenteur de deux palmes d'or, le réalisateur autrichien pourrait battre un record s'il remporte l'ultime récompense cette année avec Happy End. Mais dans la salle, l'émotion ne transcende pas les journalistes, pourtant venus en nombre. Quelques fidèles crient encore au chef-d'œuvre mais pour beaucoup Michael Haneke vient de rater sa potentielle troisième palme d'or avec cette chronique d'une famille bourgeoise.

Premiers sifflets

Ce lundi 22 mai au matin, c'est au tour de Yorgos Lanthimos de présenter son long-métrage en compétition. Il est encore question d'animaux dans Mise à mort du cerf sacré , deux ans après The Lobster couronné du prix du jury. Hélas, la presse ce lundi a émis ses premiers sifflets à l'issue de la projection. Que le réalisateur grec se rassure, le jury de Cannes est rarement d'accord avec les délibérations des critiques de cinéma. Nicole Kidman monte ce soir les marches pour la seconde fois. Elle récidive mardi pour Top of the lake, la série de Jane Campion et mercredi pour Les Proies de Sofia Coppola. Nicole Kidman montera autant de fois qu'il le faudra les marches pour obtenir un prix.

Pour les compétitions parallèles, Karim Moussaoui proposait dans la catégorie Un Certain regard En attendant les hirondelles. Une première réalisation et donc une potentille Caméra d'or, pour le réalisateur algérien. Les membres du jury Uma Thurman et Reda Kateb étaient présents, fidèles au poste pour rendre leur verdict le week-end prochain.

Du côté des people, Mads Mikkelsen est (…) Lire la suite sur Figaro.fr
