Miklós Jancsó – Marathon Films @ the Cinema MOM – Budapest

In the beginning of September, at Cinema MOM (Located: MOM Park – District, XII. 53. Alkotás Street – Budapest) pays tribute to the work of Miklós Jancsó with the next series of screenings, during which one of the director’s classics will be shown on the screen every evening from 6 p.m. September, 1. until September, 7. 2022.

All the films screened in Hungarian language!

Miklós Jancsó DPOB: September.27.1921. Vác – Hungary. Hungarian film director, screenwriter, worthy and excellent artist. He was a two-time Kossuth Prize winner (The Kossuth Award is the highest Hungarian state award for recognition of the cultivation and maintenance of Hungarian culture, named after Lajos Kossuth.) and Béla Balázs Prize-winning (The Béla Balázs Award is the highest state professional honor that can be awarded to filmmakers and television producers. The award goes to those who have demonstrated outstanding creative activity in the field of motion pictures, or who have achieved outstanding artistic and scientific achievements). Jancsó works are characterized by the very unusual long cut, which means continuous recording without cutting. The movement of the characters … even for minutes … gives the cinematic feel, which requires a lot of concentration from all participants.
Since 1988, he has been a titular university professor at the University of Theater and Film. Between 1990 and 1992 he taught at Harvard.

Jancsó died in January 2014 at the age of 92, and last September he would have been 100 years old. Commemorative events were organized in connection with the anniversary. For those who might have missed last year’s screening now will have the opportunity to watch some of his works a year later.
In the 20th century, his style was way before ahead of time. A generation grew up on his movie and just as the coin has two sides … loved his films/hated his films. He was a revolutionary in his own right.

Sept. 1. 6 p.m. – Poor Boys Hungarian drama, 90 mins. 1966

Temples of Art – Master Sculptor Bernini who Breathed Life into the Marble

Bornini

Bernini’s life and art – Italian educational film

Uránia National Film Theater – Budapest

Director: Francesco Invernizzi – Screenwriter: Stefano Paolo Giussani

The 90-minute film will be screened in its original language with Hungarian subtitles.

The new premiere of the Temples of Art series from February presents the work of master sculptor  Gian Lorenzo Bernini in a comprehensive way, with exclusive footage from his large-scale 2018 oeuvre exhibition in Rome, which also reveals fine details of the masterpieces.

There is no other artist who has had as much influence on 17th-century Rome as Bernini. The sculptor and architect, who also served nine popes, left his mark indelibly in the Eternal City. To admire Bernini’s talent and genius, we can’t find a more suitable venue than the Borghese Gallery in Rome, whose building was originally built by the artist’s patron, Cardinal Scipione Borghese, in the early 17th century. It was here that Bernini’s true talent came to fruition, as he was able to carve every vibration and drama of life into stone. The museum’s “Bernini – The Sculptor” exhibition of works “provides a lifelong experience for all visitors.”  riported by The New York Times.

Nearly five centuries have passed since the artist’s majestic groups of sculptures were created, which are now scattered throughout the world in the collections of the largest museums. The collection, exhibited by Villa Borghese, which features more than sixty masterpieces, is nothing more than Bernini’s return home. Stunning sculptures and groups of sculptures came to Rome for this special exhibition from renowned museums such as the Vatican MuseumCarrara Academy – Bergamo, Lourve -Paris, Metropolitan Museum of Art – New York, the National Gallery – London and  National Museum – Berlin.

The film from the exhibition presents and analyzes the masterpieces with the help of expert interviews exploring the artist’s life story and recordings of the works of art in unparalleled detail – recorded with 8K resolution cameras.

The film is directed by several successful films in the Temples of Arts series, including the Vatican Museum 3D, Florence and the Uffizi Gallery 3D, Raffaello – The Prince of Painters 3D or Caravaggio: About Blood and Soul. Producer Francesco Invernizzi.

Beside the screenings at the Capital, it is also shown in several other art cinemas across the country, including the following cities: Szeged, Pécs, Debrecen, Székesfehérvár, Szolnok, Szombathely, Kecskemét and Miskolc, with original Hungarian subtitles.
