Biography

One of his country's most internationally-recognized young directors, Bence Fliegauf returned to his native Hungary for his fifth feature film, JUST THE WIND.

His previous film, WOMB, was English-language and starred Eva Green (CASINO ROYALE, THE DREAMERS) and Matt Smith (BBC's "Dr. Who"). WOMB was the disturbing story of a woman who cannot escape the complexities of her decision to replicate her dead lover and raise him as her own child. WOMB was called "one of the most spectacularly handsome films of the year" by Screen International, and premiered at the 2010 Locarno Film Festival.

Fliegauf's 2007 feature MILKY WAY won Locarno's Golden Leopard for Filmmakers of the Present and Barcelona (L'Alternativa) Independent Film Festival's Feature Film Prize. DEALER won the Berliner Zeitung Audience Award at the 2004 Berlin Film Festival, as well as several Best Director prizes (Mar Del Plata, Wiesbaden, Lecce).

His debut feature FOREST won the Wolfgang Staudte Prize and Gene Moskowitz Critics Prize at the 2003 Berlin Film Festival. Bence Fliegauf was born in 1974 in Budapest. He never attended film school, instead working as an assistant director for television as he continued on the path toward directing, screenwriting, set design and sound engineering.

Csak a szél (Orig.) / 2012 / France, Germany, Hungary / 87 min

Mari lives with her invalid father and two children in a shack in the woods outside the city. Their living conditions are modest, like their other Romani neighbors. For centuries, their "kind" has been commonly referred to as gypsies. Recently, more than ever, they must exist stealthily: five entire families in the area have already been murdered, gunned down in their own homes.
