Superheroes on supersize screen
On 2 August, Le Bugue rolled an immense 5m x 6m screen down from
the balcony of the town hall to prove how immensely proud the whole village is of
its champions, the ASBB players, winners of the French Fédérale 3 Rugby Championship.
Sophie Cattoire’s film recounting their heroic match and also the third half: the
fans rushing onto the field to hug and kiss the champions, the celebrations in the
changing rooms, the baptism of the shield with champagne, the journey back to Le
Bugue and the party on the covered marketplace, gave everyone the chance to relive
those unforgettable moments with the same enjoyment.
A DVD of the film will be released on 28 September on the occasion of a projection
at the Cinéma Lux in Le Buisson. There will be a special treat: the champions’ bodega
in Le Bugue on July 7, the Shield being presented on the balcony of the town hall
– with everyone on cloud nine – and more surprises which we’re keeping secret…
