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.
