Directed by Ferenc Török “Simple, powerful, made with conviction and skill.”—Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times On a hot August day, villagers prepare for the wedding of the town clerk’s son. Simultaneously, two Orthodox Jews step down from the train with mysterious boxes. The suspicious and cunning residents, most of whom share guilty secrets, fear that these men may be heirs to deported Jews who have returned to demand their illegally acquired property. A superb ensemble cast and lustrous black and white cinematography create a haunting and unforgettable film. Winner of many Jewish Film Festival Audience Awards and Yad Vashem Chairman’s Award at Jerusalem Film Festival. 2017, Hungary, DCP, in Hungarian and Russian with English subtitles. 91 minutes. There will be a post-screening discussion directly after the film. Co-presented by Louisville Jewish Film Festival. $10 advance and Speed members $12.50 at the door $5 students with valid I.D.
