The most expensive Hungarian film ever made, this historical epic interlaces action and romance against the backdrop of the Austro-Hungarian empire. The film’s titular hero is a real-life horse that still holds the record for most wins of any thoroughbred, and acts as a beacon of hope in an otherwise dark world. Featuring lavish sets and costume design, beautiful landscape photography and exhilarating race sequences, KINCSEM is an impressive spectacle that has become Hungary’s biggest blockbuster of the last 10 years.

KINCSEM in Hungarian and English with English subtitles. | Screening format: DCP
