If anyone could have any claims on adapting Hungary’s best-known drama into a feature-length animated film, it is Marcell Jankovics, Hungary’s best-known living animator. The film has now played throughout Hungary, where it has been praised by critics, as well as at festivals in Russia, Serbia and the Czech Republic. Based on Imre Madách’s play, it takes place over the course of one very long dream, as Adam, Eve and Lucifer visit the world’s great civilizations at the height of their power, only to watch as humanity’s noblest hopes and dreams come to naught. Introducted by Dr Gergely Bakos OSB, Sapientia College of Theology, Budapest, and followed by a Q&A with director Marcell Jankovics.
