GYULA GULYÁS: PUPILS, 1965–68/1999
Film screening and discussion with the director and with Mihály Racsmány who played the main character in the film
Moderated by József Mélyi
„This movie was shot on 8mm film between 1965 and 1968. It premiered at the Amateur Film Festival in 1968. The plot is embedded in the rather complicated story of a small town student rebellion in which we were deeply interested in at that time. Despite all the fictional elements, the filming method and approach, the movie has a definitive documentary value. Like a small compartment, it has preserved the very nature of our being, of our thoughts, and the ways of expression these.”
