A Guest of Life
Directed By: Tibor Szemzö
In 1819, a Transylvanian traveler set out on foot for Asia, convinced that there he would discover 'the original Hungarians.' What he found, at the foot of the Himalayas, introduced Tibet's rich culture and the practice of Buddhism to the world at large. A first film by one of Hungary's leading film composers, narrated in English by Susannah York.

Miss Universe 1929
Directed By: Péter Forgács
Amateur filmmaker Marci Tenczer was smitten with his cousin, Liesl Goldarbeiter and chronicled her rise from a modest childhood in Vienna to the Texas competition where she was crowned the first Miss Universe. Then Hitler upended everyone's universe. Péter Forgács (El Perro Negro, Best Documentary, 2005 Tribeca Film Festival) continues his fascinating exploration of Europe's private history through home movies.

Directed By:György Pálfi
A wildly inventive and often grotesque panoply of sordid characters and imagery, this dark comedy by the director of the acclaimed Hukkle spans three generations of men in a Hungarian family: a depraved orderly, his obese son and his taxidermist grandson. From WWII through the Communist era to the present, Taxidermia charts a history of twisted desires while pushing the boundaries of imagination. A Tartan Films U.S.A release.
