About the film

With Katalin Toldi, Gyöngyi Lendvai, Lajos Sárkány. A Romany community struggles to scrape by after a series of racially motivated murders in this haunting drama from one of Hungary’s most esteemed auteurs. Zeroing in on 24 anxious hours in the life of one family, the film gathers in intensity as ethnic tensions simmer and threaten to explode, the sense of unease masterfully heightened by the uncanny sound design. Winner of the Jury Grand Prix at the Berlin Film Festival, this alternately lyrical and vérité-gritty work offers an unforgettable, eye-opening look at the plight of the Gypsy people.
Tickets: Films screened at Museum of the Moving Image are $12 each (free for Museum members). Films screened at the Bohemian National Hall are free. Seating is on a first-come, first-served basis.

Programmed by David Schwartz, Chief Curator, Museum of the Moving Image and co-presented by Museum of the Moving Image and the European Union National Institutes for Culture, Panorama Europe is a unique showcase of seventeen contemporary European features and a program of short films. Formerly known as Disappearing Act, the newly re-named festival continues the mission of showcasing vital European filmmaking as distribution remains challenging for foreign-language films in the United States. Panorama Europe gives New York audiences what may be their only chance to see these acclaimed films from the festival circuit on the big screen. This year’s festival will take place at Museum of the Moving Image in Queens and at Bohemian National Hall in Manhattan.
