Kovásznai Remix: Fragments from the films

“Perception in terms of movement is a life philosophy.”

 

Kovasznai's films belong to the world of fine art: he viewed them as a means to ‘animate’ the images he created through his paintings. In 1963 he was the first to make an experimental film for adults in the Pannonia Animation Film Studio in Hungary and thus became the "enfant terrible" in the studio. Over the course of his career as a filmmaker he made 26 short films, a mini TV-series and a musical-animation feature film. Kovasznai's is the first film oeuvre in the history of Hungarian art which has been restored and digitalised from the original negatives.
