Panorama Europe 2017, the ninth edition of the essential festival of new and vital European cinema, co-presented by Museum of the Moving Image and the members of EUNIC (European Union National Institutes for Culture), returns to the Museum and the Bohemian National Hall from May 5 through May 21 with a slate of seventeen exceptional new feature films. With a mix of fiction and documentary works, the films largely present a portrait of contemporary Europe during a period of tremendous flux.
This year Hungary’s feature picture will be 1945, by director Ferenc Török, a powerful and beautifully made film from Hungary about the arrival of two Orthodox Jews in a remote village just after the end of the war. Shot in evocative black-and-white and set to a haunting score, this riveting exploration of collective guilt fearlessly confronts a traumatic chapter in Europe’s history.
Stay tuned for updates on this year’s participants and the program.
