Hamlet has the world at his feet. Young, wealthy and living a hedonistic life studying abroad. Then word reaches him that his father is dead.

Returning home he finds his world is utterly changed, his certainties smashed and his home a foreign land. Struggling to understand his place in a new world order he faces a stark choice. Submit, or rage against the injustice of his new reality.

Simon Godwin (The Two Gentlemen of Verona 2014) directs Paapa Essiedu as Hamlet in Shakespeare’s searing tragedy. As relevant today as when it was written, Hamlet confronts each of us with the mirror of our own mortality in an imperfect world.

EXTRAORDINARY WORLD OF NICOLAS SCHÖFFER

olasz_magyar_10_schofferDocumentary film (English version, 25’)

A defining trend of the 60s was people`s optimistic faith in human intellectual energies, an unprecedented collaboration of scientific and artistic groups. Nicolas Schöffer, being one of best known artists of the era had a tremendous influence on future trends and is regarded as founder of cybernetic art.
“The task of an artist today is not the creation of art, but to enable the process of creation.”  – Nicolas Schöffer

Directed by Sándor Gerebics
Director of Photography Zsolt Nagy ’Big’
Narrated by Richard Rifkin

SOUND BEYOND TIME

olasz_magyar_10_boganyiDocumentary film (English version, 4K, 25’)
“We are dreaming up a sound. We have a certain idea. What a musician hears inside is always more beautiful than what he ends up emitting. At the same time, one should do it. This was the main train of thought behind the inspiration. It wasn’t the only one, however.” – Gergely Bogányi

GIVE ME A BIRO!

eec8010e180204bdda71f71c309be2a4Documentary film (English version,  25’)

“I used to read medicine, I used to racing cars, I was a graphologist, I did research in biology, I was an insurance clerk, I was in cargo shipping, I was an artist painter, and I was a journalist, a book publisher, a sculptor and an inventor. To be truthful, my profession is not to have a specific field of expertise”, Bíró wrote of himself. His most significant invention, the ballpoint pen was related to his career as a journalist.

Directed by Sándor Gerebics
Director of Photography: György Geo Tóth
Music by Béla Szakcsi Lakatos
