In this interesting conceptual short inspired by a 1950s Lucien Hervé’s photograph, Hungarian director Marcell Iványi literally pushes the boundaries of the original photographic image by unveiling its off-screen space. In doing so, he provides us with a personal interpretation of what the original photograph had left open to the imagination. The narrative outcome, however, is far from being univocal and is ambiguous enough to allow for multiple interpretations (a metaphor of Patriarchy and its modus operandi? An allegory of civil war?). Feel free to contribute with your own interpretation.

Szél (1996), 35mm, 6', b/n
