Directed by Barnabas Tóth (Hungary, 2019, 83 min.). Hungarian with English subtitles.
In post–World War II Hungary, 16-year-old Klara holds on to the hope that her parents will return to her. When she meets Aldo, a survivor living a solitary life, they provide each other some of the warmth and compassion that disappeared with the war. But as the Soviet Empire rises to power in Hungary, their pure and loving father-daughter relationship is misunderstood and frowned upon. A lyrical story of the healing power of love, loss, and trauma through the eyes of a young girl.
Screened at Telluride 2019.
In person: Director Barnabas Tóth
