Based on a Hungarian children’s poem by János Lackfi, preformed by Pista Busa

The film, in her own description “grows from a microscopic cell division into a living, surging image-stream of incessant transformation. Sheer intuition, embracing emotion and the significance of interpreting dreams pulsate within it. The emblem-like symbols, mythical symbols of animals and man, reminiscent of the archaic figures of people of nature, appear in an all-embracing organic frame, perpetually taking shape, arousing the notion of cave-aperture or the womb”.
From the guy that brought you Fehérlófia, a really nice morphy short. A bit dark, but masterful control of motion.
East European folk art vibes.
The ending brings to mind Michael Jackson’s “Earth Song” (1995).
Co-directors: István Orosz, Dóra Keresztes, Zsuzsanna Bulyáki, Mihály Sikur.
