Q&A with László Nemes. All ticket holders are invited to a wine reception directly following the screening, courtesy of the Hungarian Cultural Center.
Academy Award–winner László Nemes (Son of Saul) returns with an audacious, spellbindingly shot new film. “In Sunset, Nemes’s filmmaking is as absorbing as it was in Son of Saul. Budapest at the beginning of the 20th century—where an orphaned young woman, Irisz, searches for her mysterious brother while working at an upscale hat emporium—presents its own kind of nightmare, made ominous and fantastical through Nemes’ claustrophobic framing, chiaroscuro look, and fluid camera movement.” —Tina Poglajen (Film Comment Online) A Sony Pictures Classics release. New York Premiere
