Zoltán Huszárik’s films in Örökmozgó Art Cinema



The curators of the recently reopened Örökmozgó Cinema dedicated a whole month to avant-garde cinema. This Friday they show three films from Zoltán Huszárik, who is considered one of the most influential Hungarian film directors.

He made his first professional short film in 1965 at Balázs Béla Studio entitled Elegy. This 20 minute long experimental short film was generally acclaimed as being the starting point of a new visual style in Hungarian filmmaking. (film poem / film symphony). He  directed numerous poetic short films and two feature films, from which the best known is Szindbád, an experimental feature film based on short stories by the symbolist writer Gyula Krúdy.
