Directors of the films
(born 1938) is the most successful Hungarian filmmaker.  Started off in the 60’s with a new take of cinema taking liberated technical forms and a closer look at real life, Szabó often engages in individuals’ moral challenges. Later on, in the 80’s, he, in Communist totalitarian Hungary, dared to charge these challenges politically.
born in 1942 in Little Italy, New York, which is often the setting of his films. Former Catholic seminarist, he became one of the most influential filmmakers of the 70ies and 80ies. A great story teller, with themes on the violence of the modern society, human passion and guilt. The human person stands in the middle of his interest.
Swiss director, (born 1929) is known for his poetic films on life in our society. Films that break free from the sad age we are living in, armed with sensitivity of the beauty of the world. The charac-ters in Tanner’s films have three questions in mind: To whom or what am I attached? To whom or what do I belong? And a question about the sense and possibility of the human liberation and truth.
