Hungarians were celebrated in Italy, and this is really a success

Hungarian success in Italy.

The KinEst Festival in Catania, Sicily closed over the weekend with the success of the Hungarian film Eviction, produced on the Incubator Program of the Film Institute. Bence Máté Fazekas’ satirical film won the Special Jury Prize and second place in the audience vote at the Film Festival. The event’s professional jury, which studies Central European films, justified their decision by saying that

“In Evacuation, whose script was also first written by the director, the economic system that governs our society and the resulting moral conflict have come to an imaginary impasse. The story, full of unpredictable twists and turns and entertaining characters, is brought to life by Ákos Orosz, who is excellent in the role of CEO. The Apprentice, and thanks to the film’s scathing and at times brilliant sense of humor.”

Hungarian critics considered Eviction one of the best films of 2021, and in April it won the Best Screenplay award at the Fantasporto Festival in Portugal. The film, inspired by the events that took place, chronicles the heroic struggle of a determined young woman, a teacher, and a distraught old woman on the verge of expulsion, condensed into a long, endless day.

The director of the first film, Pence Matei Physikas, is able to serve the tragic situation with humor so that it does not become tasteless, and at the same time shows the person behind the debtor and the enforcer.
