Nutrition Fugue | 4 minutes

“Közért” (translation: “for the public”) was a government owned chain of stores in Hungary, during the communist era (1948-1989). The word Közért is still used in the Hungarian language. Our film was made from the 35mm celluloid raw footage of its advertisement: the film strips were digged in the soil, rotten with food and cut up in pieces.

8th October 2016 | 2 minutes

Some of the Sensations | 4 minutes

This film examines the relationship between the 1950’s movie gimmicks and the contemporary blockbusters through the synesthesia of the classical abstract cinema.

“Bay’s highest inspirations are those of a virtually experimental filmmaker of pure sensation; the rush of sensation is also a temptation for experimental filmmakers who often don’t keep their own images onscreen very long (cf. Stan Brakhage).”
(Richard Brody, The New Yorker)
Non-Places: Beyond the Infinite | 6 minutes

Marc Augé’s essay (Non-Places: Introduction to an Anthropology of Supermodernity) meets with Stanley Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey in some Hungarian highway rest areas.

35 mm film strips and magic marker: a Hungarofuturist movie.
Le Pont Mirabeau | 2 minutes
This film was made during the first hungarian abstract film workshop: the students created a free association adaptation of the poem of Guillaume Apollinaire. The film was made with direct animation technique, on 35 mm filmstrips. The film painting was created by the students of Eötvös Loránd University (ELTE), Budapest. Apollinaire was the pope of avant-garde: he cultivated chance, artistic chaos, and created the word and concept of Surrealism. This workshop experiment conducted with four students was very similar to the Surrealist game known as the ‘exquisite corpse.’
