Hungarian film screening at Lumiere 18th November 8pm

Encounters With The Obscure is delighted to be showing a film by Hungarian director Ildiko Enyedi this Sunday, 18th November commencing at 8pm.She is one of the few Hungarian directors who’s films have been screened at the Toronto Film Festival and have won the Golden Camera at Cannes in 1989.’My 20th Century’ (Original title: ‘Az en XX. Szazadom’) from 1989 is based around the story of two twins born in Budapest in 1880. Separated and adopted by different families, one of the girls has become a pampered mistress of a wealthy man and the other a bomb-wielding anarchist.Sadly, it was very hard to get hold of a high resolution copy, and the version that we have will be pixelated. Nonetheless, you should join in for this important piece of Hungarian and feminist film culture.Address:Lumiere88 Chatsworth RoadE5 0LSLondon
