The 45th edition of Film Fest Gent, which next month begins, the focus will be put on Hungary. “The unprocessed past under authoritarian regimes, fascist and communist rule governed for almost a century, the Hungarian cinema”, motivates the film festival.

The festival announces a series of films of the Hungarian director Miklos Jancso, who in 1972 for the drama “Red psalm” the prize for best director awards at the Cannes film festival. There are also contemporary films such as “Satan’s Bastard” and “Eternal Winter”, about the oppression of Hungarian peoples by the Soviet army.

In “Aurora Borealis” are some of the family members in their past, the toss, the plaything of history. The murder mystery “x – the eXploited” plays itself again in Budapest, where a police woman goes in search of the true identity of her father.

The 45th Film Fest Gent runs from 9 October to 19 October at Kinepolis Gent, Studio Skoop, Sphinx Cinema, Vooruit, KASKcinema and Capitole.
