Just the Wind

This movie screening is a part of a program of Panorama Europe film festival of new european films. Known as Disappearing Act for its first five years, 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 access to what may be their only chance to see these acclaimed films from the festival circuit on the big screen or at all. This year’s festival will take place at Museum of the Moving Image in Astoria and at the Bohemian National Hall in Manhattan. It was programmed by David Schwartz, Chief Curator at Museum of the Moving Image.

With Bence Fliegauf in person 
Presented by the Hungarian Cultural Center 

Hungary. Dir. Bence Fliegauf. 2012, 86 mins. Digital projection. New York premiere. 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.
