Arles 2013: The Ferrade by Jeff Dunas


One of the genuine highlights for many of us at the Rencontres is the Ferrade, generously offered by the Hoffmann family since many, many years. The closest thing I can equate the experience to is a kind of enjoyable and anticipated family reunion, a bit like the movie Ground-Hog Day - the ritual is the same: On the appointed morning, we gather in the Place du Forum, and like the famous 1952 BBC film, London to Brighton in Four Minutes ( in which we see, from the point of view of the train driver, the entire train journey in high speed) we get in the car, try not to miss the signs to Gageron and drive down roads we know by heart but are never sure are the right ones - past the pink flamingoes until finally, long after we're certain to have missed the Ferrade by many kilometers, the entrance comes into view.
