Dir. Ferenc Torok - 2018 - 91m - Hungary In Hungarian & Russian with English subtitles

On a summer day in 1945, an Orthodox man and his grown son return to a village in Hungary while the villagers prepare for the wedding of the town clerk's son. The townspeople – suspicious, remorseful, fearful, and cunning – expect the worst and behave accordingly. The town clerk fears the men may be heirs of the village's deported Jews and expects them to demand their illegally acquired property back.

Director Ferenc Török paints a complex picture of a society trying to come to terms with the recent horrors they’ve experienced, perpetrated, or just tolerated for personal gain. A superb ensemble cast, lustrous black and white cinematography, and historically detailed art direction contribute to an eloquent drama that reiterates Thomas Wolfe’s famed sentiment: you can’t go home again.

“Torok juggles plenty of characters and themes - guilt, greed, Russian meddling, the Holocaust, justice - but he always remains firmly in control of his story. Every frame is meticulously crafted.” - David Lewis, San Francisco Chronicle

Dir. Lance Daly - 2018 - 100m

STARRING HUGO WEAVING, JIM BROADBENT, STEPHEN REA, SARAH GREENE & JAMES FRECHVILLE!

One man’s ruthless pursuit of justice plays out against the darkest chapter of Irish history in this riveting revenge thriller. In 1847, battle-hardened soldier Feeney (James Frecheville) deserts the British army to return home to Ireland, where he finds his country ravaged beyond recognition by the Great Famine. When he discovers that his mother has died of starvation and his brother has been hanged by the British, something snaps, sending Feeney on a relentless quest to get even with the powers-that-be who have wronged both his family and his country. There is only one man who can stop Feeney’s bloody crusade: disgraced British army veteran Hannah (Hugo Weaving), whose own loyalties may be more complex than they appear…

“Not only is Lance Daly's newest feature a rollicking western with fantastic action and excellent performances, it also demonstrates how a film's subject matter can add much-needed pathos and nuance to a genre. Colour me impressed.” - Sarah Cullen, Film Ireland Magazine

“Succeeds magnificently in evoking the misery of the Famine while simultaneously treating us to a rattling adventure yarn.” - Paul Whitington, Irish Independent
