In his latest film, young Hungarian director Gyula Nemes follows on from his previous visual study The Dike of Transience with a film of related theme and form. Again in raw black-and-white images, we encounter the distinctive figures inhabiting the houseboats close to Budapest’s Kopaszi dam.


Synopsis

In his latest film, director Gyula Nemes follows on from his previous visual study The Dike of Transience with a film of related theme and form. Again in raw black-and-white images, we encounter the distinctive figures inhabiting the houseboats close to Budapest’s Kopaszi dam. The fading melancholic ambience and the specific poetic quality of the location are intensified by the soundtrack performed by members of Dunakeszi Railway Band. Made during the years 1998 to 2007, the film eloquently illustrates the way in which this genius loci is irrevocably seeping away with the fated reconstruction of this part of Budapest.

About the director

Gyula Nemes (b. 1974, Vác, Hungary) studied Czech and Hungarian literature together with film theory at ELTE in Budapest. In 2007 he finished studies of documentary filmmaking at Prague’s FAMU under the supervision of Věra Chytilová and Karel Vachek. He debuted with the short feature Parrot (2001), based on the work of Bohumil Hrabal. His film The Dike of Transience was screened in the short documentary competition at Karlovy Vary in 2004. His feature Moje jediné (My One and Onlies, 2006) took part in Critics’ Week in Venice.
