Suburb

1972 / Hungary / 8min

pigeons - East-European suburb - movement and light - poetic power of editing - urban elements: air and dreams - myth of a town defying causality - creativity that becomes a fable of itself - the physical yet intangible autonomy of cinematic imagination - subtle filmic record of the contradictions within Hungarian socialism - creativity pushes aestheticism to the fore as a learning tool

A romantically charged cinematic poem capturing the mood in Budapest in the late 1960s and early 1970s, in a work inspired by avant-garde films of the 1920s and directors such as Walter Ruttman and Dziga Vertov.
