In the 1960s, innovative and groundbreaking directors such as Miklos Jancso (Hungarian Rhapsody,The Red and the White), Istvan Szabo (Mephisto, Sunshine) and Marta Meszaros (Little Vilma: The Last Diary) emerged and established the reputation of Hungarian films on a global basis. This is the first book to discuss all major aspects of Hungarian cinema, including avant-garde, animation, and representations of the Gypsy and Jewish minorities.
