It's Not the Time of My Life (Ernelláék Farkaséknál) (2016) Directed by Szabolcs Hajdu
Presented by the UC Center for Film and Media Studies
Doors 7:00 PM / Start 7:30 PM @ The Mini - 1329 Main St.
Renowned Hungarian filmmaker and theatre director Szabolcs Hajdu’s film offers compelling insights into contemporary Hungary and its place in Europe without leaving the confines of Hajdu’s own apartment, where the entire film was shot. Eszter, her husband, and son are paid an unexpected visit in the middle of the night. Eszter’s sister Ernella, her husband Albert and daughter Laura have returned from a failed attempt to emigrate to Scotland, where the parents worked for one year. It soon becomes clear that the two families had never really been in tune with one another. Preceded by selected shorts. Introduction by Michael Gott, University of Cincinnati. (100 min)
