“Prayers at the southern ends”
(A film profile about József Bogdán priest-poet)

fohasz

Runtime: 25 min, HD, production year: 2017

Storyline:

József Bogdán, the priest-poet from Vajdaság, lives his everyday life, hoping his prayers will

come true and dreaming of retaining future for the Hungarian community in the area.

But beside hopes and dreams, peace and anxiety, lineliness and fear also surround the priest

of Fehértemplom. Our documentary intends to present the portrait of József Bogdán,

a priest and poet - two missions with enormous challenges for the priest and with sorrowful

 inspiration and shelter for the poet. We want to present the man, the priest who really has

his place and people at his heart,

who marries, baptizes and visits the ill; who buries, celebrates mass, teaches RE and

prepares children for receiving the sacraments. In brief: the theme is the priest and the poet.

Religion and poetry. At the same time, at the same place.

"Resumption"

http://cinema-film.rs/filmek/filmekim/Beillaszkedes-500.jpg

Runtime: 40 min, HD, production year: 2015

 

Storyline:

Our film is looking at a really current issue – the emigration problem that does not apply only

to the northern territories of Serbia but concerns Hungary and other developing countries as

well.
Every week you find more and more houses with tightly shut window shades; as you go to

 work, day after day, usual passers-by keep disappearing from the streets; more and more

people put a foreign address  on their Facebook profile... They have left. To the unknown.

A lot of them.
Some people leave with their families – take their children, the family dog – others set about

emigrating alone, leaving their spouse and children behind. They go first – as some kind of

pioneers – to create something secure. And everything will be better.
But where? When? And above all: for who?
How are such decisions made? When does ”enough is enough” come? Where to go? How do

they succeed in their new home? Is leaving really the best solution?
Perhaps there is still some hope...

"The colour of half-shadow"

Runtime: 33 perc, HD, production year: 2015.

 

Storyline:
In this film, we wished to paint the portrait of Laura Peity Sagmeister, the painter, for her

pictures are not only kept in evidence among the original values of our immediate

surroundings, but they cannot be evaded in the context of contemporary European culture

either. In the film, we laid emphasis on what our character can deposit in the extensive

archives of the fine arts.

Perhaps, that is why we found it exciting to answer what inspires our artist. While working,

Laura tells us with unprecedented empathy about the methods she uses and the different

experience, as if hidden things, through which a picture becomes the picture. How well she

can do this is already proved.
In order to ramble over Laura’s spaces, just like observing nature, one needs a sea of peace

and at the same time an intensified inner glow.

We must slide smoothly and noiselessly from etchings to paintings. With our cameras, we

follow the strokes of the brush and suddenly,

out of the denseness of rich drawings flashes something which encloses and permeates us.

" Well drilling, a different way of looking for treasure"

 

Runtime: 52 min., HD, production year: 2013

 

Storyline:

Our film is a documentary; however, it is more than that. It attempts to present real people,

real stories, southerners, well drillers and their trade. Here, the film steps out of its home

turf and follows the characters, small groups of well drillers, through the cities and villages of

Vojvodina. It follows them all the way to Belgrade, Serbia’s capital, and to its nearby

settlements. It crystallizes the experience of people working in this ancient craft, who

inherited the intensity of this earth and also the capaciousness necessary for this intensity.

It is different.

Runtime: 22 min, HDV, production year: 2011.

 

Storyline:

In 2011 the embassies of Hungary and Austria organized a symphony orchestra composed of

students of music academies in Serbia (Novi Sad, Beograd, Nis), who presented a concert in

Belgrade on 21 June 2011, dedicated to the 200th anniversary of Franz Liszt's birth, at the

event of the closure of Hungary's six-month Presidency of the EU, all this taking place on

“Arriving with music and colors”

Runtime: 41 min, HDV, production year: 2011

 

Storyline:

In the past one and a half decades Miroslav Jovanèiæ has been systematically and

consequently building his art opus, in a quite peculiar way, since his work is connected to

music and to literature, too. It’s not a parallel bondage, since Jovanèiæ created a world in

which arts live together and not beside music and literature. This crosstalk between arts, this

phraseology full with cultural information make Miroslav Jovanèiæ and his art exciting and

unique. He claims that for an artist the most important thing is to create his own world,

since the world we actually live in is not the one we should be living in. His higher level,

complete world he created is just as real for him like the real world. It has mystery, spirit,

mystique, but it’s not depressing, it does not generate negative thoughts. It radiates

happiness.

This film was done in Hungarian, the artist speaks perfect Hungarian. Miroslav Jovanèiæ

speaks about himself, his art and ars poetica during exhibition openings, concerts and during

work.

Storyline:

After the Town Hall of Subotica, another work of art of secession, the Raichle Palace in Subotica, today it gives home to the Modern Art Gallery – we present this building from the

important part of our identity. In these series we get to know the significant buildings of

Vojvodina, as a first the Town Hall of Subotica. Locals love their Town Hall: it is the strongest

example of the great inspiration of secession and European architects and industrialists in

this town dating back to the turn of the century.

“A lot of things have to be borne”

Runtime: 27 min, HDV, production year: 2010

 

Storyline:

Our film takes place in a small, closed world, in the boonies, where there are only two rows

of houses. The people in the film are simple people, living in modest conditions, just like

their ancestors. They make a living by old crafts, they guard their traditions. The goose

breeder and the shepherd live here. In this simple and monotone world time stopped many

decades ago. But time stopped only seemingly here. The truth is, if we have a closer look,

time flied here, too. Towards decay and destruction.  The problems of the whole of

humanity, global warming, pollution, the news about the bad condition of the planet Earth

reached this part of the planet, too. And this tiny, closed community understands and feels

the importance of this situation. In their own simple way, they try to do something,

something good that can maybe save our world. They try to live in harmony with nature, not

taking advantage of it. They try to pass on the heritage from their ancestors to future

generations, so they would have a chance to learn about our world.

Our film shows the significance of small people in the time of powers and gigantic

companies, as the saying says “after the game, the king and the pawn go into the same box”.

“Off we go…”

Runtime: 14 min, HDV, production year: 2010

 

Storyline:

There are still people who are making a living by doing crafts that are the legacy of our

ancestors, crafts that almost disappeared. They respect and guard the customs, traditions, they are preserving the charms of bygone eras. The reasons for that vary… an inherited flock,

or crafts passed on by father to son, or crafts giving financial security. The main character of

our film is a simple, everyday person, who makes his living and lives his life conforming to

nature, walking on the path of his ancestors.

The film gives an insight to the magical world of farms, the beauty and difficulties of the life

of a shepherd. As the film goes on we travel back in time, and enjoy the feeling of freedom –

in a time when we were not the slaves of consumer society. This is only one day among the

endless number of easy days. It brings back memories from the era of our great-

grandmothers and great-grandfathers, in a time when everybody lived like this.

“The colors of the homeland (documentary about Endre Faragó painter)”

Runtime: 27 min, DVCam, production year: 2009

 

Storyline:

The documentary of 27 minutes commemorates the well-known painter, who researched

European qualities in painting and in design, but his art was mainly affected by a certain local

characteristic of the great plain (alföld).

Endre Faragó was born on a farm near to Orom on 15th October 1929, shortly he moved to

Subotica. Even though he was born in a village he felt closer to the city. He was greatly

influenced by Milan Konjoviæ, who claimed he “always walked on the bright side of life”.  He

took off on a peculiar journey. Ðorðe Joviæ art critic wrote about him: “Faragó is faithful to

this region, the region where he began his journey, regardless of leaving the village, he

accepted the city. He depicts the bitterness of starvation on rich corn fields, the anxiety of

the poor in the city, the whim of nature on canvas through his own experiences. Behind the

sensitive, quiet smile of the painter hides the ongoing drama, but when looking at his

paintings we can feel the blunt noise, the tension, the anxiety. His paintings show landscapes

of Vojvodina, people illustrated through his peculiar mystical perspective. He used a

combination of techniques: collage covered with paint and pastel layers, creases and

stickings appear. Beside paintings and graphics he also designed tapestry. His slogan was

“modern furniture demands modern tapestry”. Borbála Csepella, the artist’s widow speaks

about him in the documentary, as well as Olga Ninkov Kovacsev art historian of the City

Museum of Subotica, and Ottó Tolnai Kossuth Prize-poet, they give us a better introduction

to the painter who was well known in the wider region.

“Ghetto lane”

Runtime: 44 min, DV, production year: 2009

 

Storyline:

The strange and lonely figures of Kanjiža have been recognized by our artists a long time ago.

The world known dancer, József Nagy, or the writer-poet Ottó Tolnai draw inspiration from

the atmosphere and figures of this small town. This documentary wants to introduce

another person like that, he’s an important part of the town’s life, he’s a true eccentric. His

eccentricity originates also from him being minority.

Lukács is an old Roma musician, his slim and fragile figure appears often is cafes, pubs or on

the street. He’s part of the town. His indispensable partner is his instrument, the prim-

tambura, which he carries around. He likes to play for everyone. Not only for money. His

authentic Roma music brings smiles to people’s faces, and this music secures his very

modest living. In this film he talks about his life, his family, difficulties, his love towards

music, and the camera follows him around doing his everyday deeds.

Another important figure of the film is Lukács’s grandchild, who is also very fond of music,

but this music is not his granddad’s traditional music anymore. He’s more interested in rap,

hip-hop. His biggest dream is to perform together with the Hungarian artist, Majka. He’s

ready to do anything for success, he even registered in a TV’s talent show.

How can these two styles coexist beside one another, these two generations, did the Roma

values change, these are the questions this film is trying to answer.  Also, it deals with the

question how is it possible for Romas to live below the poverty line, what are the chances to

break out, succeed in a small town like this, on the North of Serbia.

“Muzzle flashes” – portrait about Mihály Novák sr. painter and the artists’ colony in Stara Moravica

Runtime: 28 min, DVCam, production year: 2009.

 

Storyline:

This film presents the work and the personality of Mihály Novák sr., as well as the artists’

colony in Stara Moravica. Sándor Torok wrote the following: “Mihály Novák, like genius loci –

decent watchmaker, avid art collector and ambitious amateur painter. His tireless

organization, steady optimism, strong faith and his stubborn persistence secured the colony

of 9+1 members, its growth and its internationalization. Keeping the flame of culture in

these hard times, in wind or storm, is no small thing.” The paintings, making visual signs in

the film have a “genuine” effect, the viewer gets trustworthy information. This documentary

is able to show the autonomous creator and the colony’s creators, whose art does not really

connect in the sense of the outside world, just like the real and at the same time virtual

tribe’s priest, whose figure will become an artistic sign for the future generations to come.

The most archaic (relating to land, blood ties, community, closed, etc.) and most modern

(individual, cosmopolitan, reflexive, multimedia, open, etc.) dimensions of art are present all

at once in this medium, and based on this creation one can see that the film, like a medium

has the right aptness to show the unique dualism’s inspirational power on the big world.

“Myth or reality?”

(are there tunnels beneath Kanjiža?)

Runtime: 67 min, DVCam, production year: 2008

Storyline:

The tunnel system beneath the town has been concerning locals for centuries. This local

legend about the tunnels, this rumor became our treasure that is passed on from father to

son, like shared secret. Proof about the existence of this underground system is minimal, but

the locals of Kanjiža are certain that there are tunnels under the today’s downtown. Many

cases prove that. There are stories about certain points in the town leading down to the

tunnels, but they are hard to find. First of all, because the downtown keeps changing, there

are constructions, reconstructions, secondly the joint memory did not keep accurate

geographic data, information. In this film we are talking with locals about the tunnels who

had some kind of contact during their work, or heard about the tunnels from their

ascendants, and have valuable information. The fact that there are so many older people

having some kind of information about the tunnel proves that even if history, or historical

sources don’t provide some sort of proof, the stories and the community’s memory animate

history. The individual stories great number gives us interesting data, indicates many things,

and brings us a bit closer to history, the history of this region, the history of what we are part

of.

“The power of storytelling”

Runtime: 33 min, DVCam, production year: 2008

 

Storyline:

Judit Raffai, the ethnographer in Vojvodina, is referred to as a storyteller by her friends, she

knows stories that represent the treasures of us all. With her help we talk about people who

work on guarding our traditions, who are more talented than average. No doubt, the

collection of folk tales is very important for Judit, as well as raising awareness about the

traditional values of villages, and the guarding of the same. She claims she owes her

profession to an old man, who absolutely impressed his audience with his folk tales. She

studied in Budapest, in the Department of Ethnography, where she learnt the true essence

of the individual research school. She learnt that it’s not enough to record a tale told by a

storyteller, but the storyteller’s personality is just as important.

“Our daily bread”

Runtime: 17 min, DVCam, production year: 2008

 

Storyline:

Give us this day our daily bread. Says the Our Father prayer. Today the request’s, the

prayer’s sense fades, since we can buy some pastries anywhere, any time. This great symbol

of our humanity, our daily bread, lost a lot of its significance, of its respect. What was a real

loaf like and how was it made? What’s today’s bread like, what changed? What experiential

and behavioral forms lie behind the motif of breaking the bread? These are the questions

our film tries to answer, searching for the oldest ruses of homemade bread baking, its

significance and rituality with the help of an old lady from the village. We want to present

the traditional ways of bread baking, the equipment used, and how today’s bread is made. It

is interesting to see the differences. Also the difference between what a morsel of bread

meant once, and what it means today.

"Embodied Humility"

Runtime: 17 perc, DVCam, production year: 2008.

 

Storyline:

It is a documentary based on situations that presents the famous producer, Josef Nagy’s

work and method from the beginnings (rehearses) till the finishing (premiére). His new play 

Sho-bo-gen-zo/The path of clear or true sight was made in his hometown (Magyarkanizsa) in

the summer of 2008. The play was inspired by the ancient Zen master Dogen, who had lived

in the XIII century. The piece is an exploration of the human desire through different periods

for the perfect harmony as well as for the moments of the truth in a compressed time by the

analogous means of improvisation. Josef Nagy’s work had it first premiére also in

Magyarkanizsa on the eleventh of September in the Art House. His devotion is sustained by

the clay fields of Bácska  and stretches to the endless blue sky. Josef’s faithful approach can

be observed not just in the practice room but also on the stage. During the rehearsals he

often remains silent for hours. However his strong spirit can control and conduct the whole

play. The actors or dancers are never been forced to do particular movements. In his

choreographies, Josef’s main roll unites with his partners’ play. He often stays at the back in

“Good wine for everyone!”

(Enjoying wine from Vojvodina’s sand soil)

Runtime: 25 minutes, DVCam, production year: 2008

 

Storyline:

Wine has a different significant taste everywhere. Different taste, flavor, aroma,

composition.

In the film “Good wine for everyone!” we want to find out how many colors and tastes do

wines have in the SUBOTICA – HORGOŠ sandy area (in Vojvodina).  This sandy area is a true

cultural landscape. The area owes its distinctive identity to human activities. This part of our

patria has a viticulture rooting back over 500 years.

The grapes ripen in various times in the year on the sand soil, so VINTAGE begins in

September and lasts till the middle of October. We filmed a vintage that was based on

traditions, where the wine-growers process the grapes in a traditional way.

We visited the HARVEST FESTIVAL in Paliæ, where they celebrate the bountiful harvest. We

learnt what the Artist (painter, actor, film director) says about the wine philosophy.

We visited the area’s wine lovers’ Mecca, the WINE CASTLE in Hajdukovo. We got an insight

into the life of the Wine Castle’s summer ARTISTS’ COLONY.

The wine-growers love filled hearts has to be emphasized, the power of the work of creation

and its artistic effect, which results the wine.
