Woman With a Movie Camera Presents: the World Restoration Premiere of Riddance
+ pre-recorded extended intro by Márta Mészáros
A thoughtful, observational drama about a young woman’s fight to retain her integrity despite falling in love.
Dir Márta Mészáros
With Erzsébet Kútvölgyi, Gábor Nagy, Mariann Moór, Ferenc Kállai
Jutka is an independent young textile worker – free, but mindful of social prejudice. When she falls in love with a university student she faces a test of honesty. Informed by her experiences researching a documentary, Mészáros examines youthful identity and integrity. The beautifully observational camerawork from Lajos Koltai is often in close-up, but never with judgement.
