MIKLÓS JANCSÓ

[00]

Translation:

To date, there are no fashion films upon which we should be thinking about. Nowadays the films one should be thinking about are not in fashion. But this few minutes is a film like it. What do you think the message is?

Miklós Jancsó was born in 1921 in Vác, Hungary. Jancsó is one of cinema’s greatest visionaries. His films from the second half of the 1960s, such as THE ROUND UP (1965), THE RED AND THE WHITE (1967), and SILENCE AND CRY (1968) were at the forefront of the revival of Hungarian cinema. At 92, he continues to make films regularly. Most recently he directed a segment from the Béla Tarr-produced anthology, MAGYARORSZÁG 2011 (2012), a response to Hungary’s right wing government and it’s increased restriction of culture and film.
