Festiv’Art, The Art Rush
Documentary - 48 min.

A film by Jean Claude Irving Longin

TV premiere on The Bravo! Channel

The first impression upon discovering Frelighsburg’s Art Rush, under the summer’s end torrid warmth, is an unexpected infatuation shared by thousands of visitors as they swarm in from Quebec, Ontario, Vermont and New York…

This wonderful human wave of enthusiasts suddenly breaks loose on private lawns, across flower-scented streets and between skillfully renovated Centennial residences.
And then comes the insatiable visual bulimia from those collective pilgrims in their search for Art. There is a palpable excitement and an unquenchable thirst for discovery that can certainly be traced back to an ancient migratory rites, in some ancient tribal cult to honor of the “Harvest Moon”.
