Post Mortem by Péter Bergendy (HU, 2021, 115’, horror, thriller, ghost)
'Countless ghosts have been stuck in our world as a result of the destruction caused by World War I and the Spanish Flu epidemic. Tamás, the wandering post mortem photographer, gets to a haunted village after meeting a ten-year-old orphan girl, Anna, during the freezing winter of 1918. After experiencing the strange, supernatural phenomena, he decides to investigate the intentions of the ghosts. Anna accompanies Tamás's exploration through all its dangers, while the ghosts rave with fury.'
