Hungarian cinema of the 1960s and 1970s
The selection will present 20 of the most interesting films of the time when the Hungarian cinema was outstanding in comparison not only to other European works but to the entire world cinema. An important part of this section will be a mini-retrospective of Miklós Jancsó - the greatest visionary among the artist of this trend, whose trilogy of terror drew international critics' attention to Hungarian cinema. Besides this, we will present 15 films by other directors who created the so-called Hungarian new wave: Zoltán Fábri, István Szabó, Ference Kardos, András Kovács, Károly Makk, Márta Mészáros and others. The works will be selected together by Hungarian film critics and the festival's organisers.
The late 1950s and the 1960s saw several fascinating film trends developing in the countries of Central and Eastern Europe. This artistic upheaval was initiated by the Polish Film School, followed by the triumphs of the Czech School and the Hungarian New Wave, with cinemas finally screening works by Mikhail Romm's students and the Yugoslavs of the 'black wave'.
