The opening movie of the Hungarian film retrospective organized in cooperation with the CINEMATEK is one of the many lost films of Hungary’s golden age of silent film. This hundred-year-old silent film was discovered in the basement of the Hungarian House, a cultural Center in New York City. How it got there is still unknown, but great efforts have been made to return the film to its homeland.
The movie will be screened according to the traditions of the silent film era, with live piano accompaniment by Péter Mekis, Hungarian pianist.
