  • Analog Memories - The Hungarian Experimental Cinema

    LOOK INSIDE THE GHOST MACHINE (Péter Lichter / Hungary / 2012 / 4’)
    The first avant-garde filmmakers believed that cinema had the function of a machine, created to manage pure emotions.

    NUTRITION FUGUE (Péter Lichter / Hungary / 2018 / 4’)
    'Közért' (translation: 'for the public') was a chain of stores run by the government of Hungary during communism (1948-1989). The word 'közért' is still present in Hungarian. Our film was made with ads from these stores, their original 35mm films were decomposed and cut into pieces.
