“Those who have never seen a film by Miklós Jancsó from the 1960s, when this Hungarian director was at his peak, are usually astonished by the experience...To watch The Round-Up or 1967’s The Red and the White for the first time is to witness a kind of film ballet entering the realms of political drama.”
– Derek Malcolm, The Guardian
Hungarian director Miklós Jancsó burst onto the international film scene with The Round-Up in 1966. For the next three decades, he remained one of cinema’s boldest stylists. The long takes and sinuous camera movements that immediately distinguish his films evolved into veritable cinematic ballets, his frame so full of movement and so richly composed with layers of action that he challenged the very notion of “the shot.” Join us as we get reacquainted with one of the movies’ most remarkable artists and several key works of modern cinema.
