Cracow by Polanski
(HDV, 25 min)

 

Cracow by Polanski

 

The title of the film refers to Roman Polansky's autobiography "Roman by Polansky". This book was an inspiration to show places and people in Cracow who still remember the director and live by his legend.

 

Roman Polansky lived in Cracow during 1937-1955 - almost 20 years of his life. These years formed him to become one of the most popular directors of the world. The end of 30's it was Jewish Cracow where out of 250 thousands inhabitants circa 50 thousands were Jews. It was one of the happiest time in young Roman's life.

 

The Second World War made him leave the Cracow ghetto and he lost his family. He was hidden by a Polish family near Cracow. After the war till 1955, it was not only the hard Stalin's time but also the time when young Roman discovered his passion to art: especially to cinema. In these times he played in social realistic plays in Young Spectator Theatre in Cracow and in puppets plays in Groteska Theatre.

 

Finally he left Cracow for Lodz in 1955 to study directing at the Film Academy. In his first etudes there were many thoughts and scenes about Cracow...

A Place to Win
(HD, 50 min)

 

 

 

This documentary is about the mysteries of the so-called 'lottery-houses', exploring a unique place where only winners have been living. These people have one thing in common: during the days of the fashionable lottery game - between 1958 and 1968 - they all won a flat in a sweepstake for special prize.

 

How can past send us a message through the traces of an old building? How much is the building connected to its beginning while so many changes have happened during its history of 50 years? The 'lottery-house phenomenon' raises many interesting questions to answer:

 

How can a building become part of our cultural memory through its function? May this 'lottery legend' eliminate or escalate in the present modern environment?

Roma Rally
(HD, 45 min)

 

 

Two young Gypsy kids from a small village at a pauper area decided to take part in a rally at the age of 7. Now they are 17 and one of them got the driving license. They went through a lot of misery since then: grew up in an extremely poor family, got separated from each other because one of them lost his sight, so he moved to the capital, to study in a special school. The other one studies to become a car mechanic. Now they only meet on weekends at their grandparents' place.

 

They tried to get support for the rally, but all they got is a 30-year-old car. They are going to get it now, and the plan is to fix it together. The aim is to take part in the rally, which they have been planning for 10 years, but no one knows if there is any chance even to get there. If yes, then anything can happen.

 

A film is a story of two special kids, with a multiple disadvantaged background who try to get somewhere from a further back staring line.

7 days with Gypsies
(working title, HD, 80 min)

 

 

A documentary film exploring the question how does the Roma minority react when another outsider, a filmmaker of Iraqi origin approaches them to make a film about their life. A gentle film about an unlikely meeting, the common issues a foreigner and a minority face in Hungary, how the similarity in their appearance, the joint feeling of not belonging draws them to each other and opens them up.

 

I am from Iraq, I studied in Hungary in the eighties and now revisiting my experience with the Gypsies, when I stumbled upon a village in South-Eastern Hungary while location scouting for a feature film. I was so drawn to the people of Baks and to their stories that I made several visits, the result of which is a 40 minute pilot of the film I intend to make.

 

The 40 minute version was shown at the Filmszemle, Budapest in 2009.

Wonderful Gladiators
(HD CAM, 55 min)

 

 

Baltazar Theater is the only professional acting association in Hungary that consists of mentally challenged actors. The association was founded by Dóra Elek in 1998, inspired by the Belgian Théatre du Plantin (founded in 1983), which also works with mentally deficient actors. Though the actors are mentally handicapped, their accomplishments are not measured by their abilities, but by the expectations of the audience. Their performances are as of equal quality as any other 'normal' theaters.

 

The goal of the film is to popularize and support the special effort that Baltazar Theater signifies. HBO with its large audience could take part in the development of a culture that offers the chance of social integration to mentally challenged people. Another goal of the documentary is to change the social view on those who are in some way handicapped.

Young Forever
(HDV, 83 min)

 

Who wants to get old? Who is welcoming the first wrinkles, grey hair or no hair at all?

 

Annually 7 million of rejuvenating surgeries are made and the number keeps rising. Still, it seems to satisfy only the surgeons, not the patients.

 

The film is a road movie in a search for "elixir of youth". One women quest to find out what is possible to do to slow down the cruel process of physical and psychical decadence and find the reconciliation with the aging.

 

The documentary strives to introduce this subject in an intimate and humorous manner. Although some of the newest scientific research will be shown in the movie, it is a personal journey with a humorous tone.

 

The film's main conflict evolves between a person's desire to stay young and nature's cycle of birth, growth, decay and death - the fight goes on within ourselves.
