FRESH AIR (DIR. AGNES KOCSIS)
09.25.Sa.19H, Topkino

Viola is still a beautiful woman. Angéla is ashamed of her mother.
Communication between them has become almost impossible.
They are together only to watch their favourite television series; they never miss an episode.
Probably, in secret, they both are in love with the protagonist.
Viola works where no one else wants to. She is looking for a real man whom she could love.
Angéla would like to design nice dresses. She desires something different. Another life.
Fresh air.

BUDAPEST SPA VISION
09.24.F.20H, A38 Hajó

Budapest is not by chance called the city of spas. The geologic features of the Hungarian capital include  countless thermal springs, on which many thermal baths have been built. These spas are visited by both citizens and tourists not only due to their healing effect, but also for relaxation.  Each bath has its own special image – both from the aspect of architecture and its regular public. But they have all one thing in common: their special atmosphere, the special interaction between water,  vapour and steam, in which  the sounds, lights, colours, contrasts slur.

 

 

INVESTIGATOR
09.24.F.19H, Topkino

At first glance, Tibor Malkáv is an ordinary 37-year-old man, having serious communication problems. He is precise and silent. Though not rich, he can buy whatever he needs. He doesnt depend on his job financially. He loves being a forensic pathologist.
A few floors up in the hospital where he works lies his mother with cancer in her spinal cord. No matter how speechless or shallow this relationship is, Malkáv has no other relatives. He promises he will not let her die.
