One Day (Egy nap)
Location: Bartos Screening Room
With director Zsófia Szilágyi in person for discussion after the film
New York premiere
Presented by Balassi Institute – Hungarian Cultural Center, New York
Hungary. Dir. Zsófia Szilágyi. 2018, 99 mins. Digital projection. With Zsófia Szamosi, Leó Füredi, Ambrus Barcza, Zorka Varga-Blaskó, Márk Gárdos. Is there a more universal story than the drama at the heart of Zsófia Szilágyi’s vivid and absorbing debut feature? Anna is a young mother who barely manages to do the impossible each day—corral her three demanding children, feeding them and getting them to school and to lessons, while dealing with household problems and financial stress, and a husband who may be having an affair. With a handheld camera and a cacophonous soundtrack worthy of Robert Altman, Szilágyi immerses us in the drama of daily life, showing it so clearly that we see the familiar in a new light.
