Gábor Bódy was a Hungarian film director, screenwriter, theoretic, and occasional actor. A pioneer of experimental filmmaking and film language, Bódy is one of the most important figures of Hungarian cinema. He studied history and philosophy at Eötvös Loránd University and later filmmaking at the Academy for Theater and Film Arts. During his university days he became an influential member of the Balázs Béla Stúdió (BBS). He established various experimental and avant-garde projects at BBS including the Film Language Series in 1973 and the K/3 experimental film group in 1976, reshaping the postwar Hungarian avant-garde film’s path. Bódy participated in the making of the first international video magazine INFERMENTAL.
