FRESH AIR: NEW HUNGARIAN CINEMA
In the most recent cinema landscape, a new wave of Hungarian cinema can easily be observed: although never meeting a period of decadence, a new generation of Hungarian film-makers is nowadays growing more and more important, along with new styles and new forms, which tell stories from today’s world with a sheer master’s touch.
These are directors mainly born in the 1970s: to name a few, György Pálfi, Ferenc Török, Gyula Nemes, along with many others that have just directed their first or second film, and are being welcomed in most prestigious film festivals. This monographic section will explore such fascinating and complex cinematic universe. Ten films will be screened, all offering unforeseeable, unexpected qualities, which will allow the audience of Bergamo Film Meeting to discover a productive world of absolute relevance and interest.
