In our series "Evenings of Cinema" we screen mostly Hungarian films, whose music and its creators are particularly dear and important to us. Both feature films and documentaries are on offer, from the dawn of cinema as well as from the recent past. And to make the experience even more complete, we will also invite the composers of the selected films (or their close colleagues and friends) to a conversation. Our host is film and music critic László Kolozsi, who is also a novelist and screenwriter, the latter of which he also teaches at MOME.
In December we will screen Zoltán Huszárik's movie Csontváry, premiered in 1980, on the occasion of the 90th birthday of Miklós Kocsár, the composer of the film's music. Our guest will be Balázs Kocsár, conductor.

The film(s) were provided by the National Film Institute Non-profit Ltd.
