Hajni Kis to KVIFF.TV: My characters are always rootless

Published: August 29, 2021| 09:38 AM

The Hungarian picture Wild Roots – in which a father attempts to re-establish contact with his daughter as part of efforts to get his life back on track – is in contention in the East of the West competition at the 55th KVIFF. In an interview, director Hajni Kis explains why she cast the untrained lead actor (in real life an MMA fighter) even though he came unprepared for an audition, and discusses the way relations between him and the girl playing his child changed during the shoot.
