Hungarian Contemporary Films in Brazil

Five Hungarian contemporary films screened at three cities in Brazil.

The opening of the series of screenings took place in Brasília on 16 October at the Banco do Brasil Cultural Center. After the screenings in the capital, the audience will have the opportunity to watch the films in November and December in Rio de Janeiro and São Paolo, respectively. The program includes Barnabás Tóth’s Akik Maradtak (Those Who Remained), Ferenc Török’s 1945, Antal Nimród’s A Viszkis (The Whiskey Bandit), Béla Bagota’s Valan: Angyalok Földje (Valan: Valley of Angels) and Márta Mészáros’ Aurora Borealis. The first screenings show that the Brazilian viewers enjoyed the films based on the unique fates of Hungarians and Central Europeans with understanding and sensitivity.
