To be shown Saturday and Sunday at 10:00 a.m.

12 August 1945: A Hungarian village, in the wake of war and in the shadow of Russian occupation, rises for the wedding day of the town clerk’s son. At 11 AM, a black-clad father and grown son suddenly appear at the railway station. The villagers — suspicious, remorseful, fearful, and cunning — anticipate the worst from the two Jews and behave accordingly. The bride’s former fiancé returns. Within hours, everything has changed. Secrets, sins, reckoning, love, betrayal, confrontation emerge.

Based on the acclaimed short story “Homecoming” by Gábor T. Szántó and adapted by Szántó and Director Ferenc Török, a complex picture of a society facing the horrors they’ve experienced, perpetrated, or just tolerated for personal gain is revealed. A superb ensemble cast, lustrous black and white cinematography, and historically detailed art direction contribute to this eloquent drama.

We are proud to present this film in association with the Maine Jewish Film Festival. Click here to see the cinematic trailer.

In Hungarian with English subtitles. (Not rated, 91 min.)
