Film lineup:


Trezor Friday, October 18, 7:00pm

The keys to Trezor, the vault of the Ministry of Internal Affairs are lost in the confusion of the 1956 Revolution. And so, only a few days after the battle for independence is violently put down, the police pulls a former bank robber out of prison and asks him to open their own uncrackable safe.


Bad Poems (Rossz versek) Friday, October 18, 9:00pm

Tamás takes a trip down memory lane to figure out if love only exists when it's practically gone. As he's trying to pick up the pieces, he begins to realize what makes this current society so confused, which gives us a highly subjective view of Hungary's present.


Brazilok Saturday, October 19, 1:00pm

Chaos bursts out among the gypsy minority of the town of Acsa when the mayor, urged by the new young priest of the village, announces that this year the gypsy football team called Brazilians can also take part in the football championship of the village; and this year, thanks to a Brazilian millionaire originally from Acsa, the winning team will be invited to Rio de Janiero.


The Troupe (Vándorszínészek) Saturday, October 19, 3:00pm

When a handful of travelling actors perform a play, an angry fist fight erupts. A young soldier sides with them in the scuffle. After he is forced to flee, the troupe takes him in and together, they rattle in a cart from village to village, on their way to Budapest. It seems like a lucky escape, but little does he know what awaits him.


Genesis (Genezis) Saturday, October 19, 5:15pm

The story of Genesis is formed around the fate of a young Roma boy, whose childhood reaches a sudden and drastic end when he loses his family in a tragic and brutal attack. Already buried in her work, a young female lawyer succumbs to pressure from her superior and undertakes the defense of one of the men facing trial for the part he reputedly played in this infamous series of racist murders.

Cultural Festival and Reception Saturday, October 19, 7:00pm
