By István Szabó
'Lovefilm' is an early work by Hungarian director István Szabó. It follows two childhood sweethearts, Jansci and Kata, who are inseparable until the Nazi invasion of Hungary. This is the tale of their tortuous attempts at getting back together, to be separated again, when Kata rejects the Communist rule and emigrates to France while Jansci remains in Budapest.
Their correspondence culminates in Jansci's visit to Kata's home in Lyon, where they must unpack their relationship and their shared past in order to discover the courses their lives will take - together, or apart. Szabó's visualisation of Jansci's nostalgia for their shared past before the Second World War makes for an unforgettable viewing experience.
The film will be introduced by eminent film and culture scholar and poet Prabodh Parikh, who will be in discussion with the audience after the screening.
Launched on April 3rd 2015, 'Movies at the Museum' is a monthly screening programme, curated by filmmaker and cinematographer, Avijit Mukul Kishore, and architect and urban designer, Rohan Shivkumar. The programme includes films and videos made in different genres – documentary, fiction, animation and visual art. Film, art and academic practitioners are invited from time to time to engage in discussion on their work. The screenings are free and open to public.
Cocteau draws in front of the camera. We see a sure, definitive line develop – like a jazz musician or like writing in action. This unfolding line is the central figure of the film which presents a highly original erudite portrait of the artist, showing the constant interactions at work and the essence of a politic, eclectic research.
