BAYAYA
BAJAJA
1950, 75 min, Czechoslovakia, Dir: Jiří Trnka

A young peasant embarks on a quest to free his mother’s soul from purgatory and save three princesses from a host of hydra-headed dragons in this alternately lyrical and rousing medieval-set adventure based on Czech fairy tales.


KINCSEM
2017, 120 min, Hungary, Dir: Gábor Herendi

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.


THE DESCENT
2005, Lionsgate, 99 min, UK, Dir: Neil Marshall

Six women exploring a cave system in the Appalachian Mountains become trapped inside - and they’re not alone; as they struggle to find a way out, the group is pursued by flesh-eating humanoids. Shauna Macdonald, Natalie Mendoza and Alex Reid star in this creepy and claustrophobic British shocker. "A sensationally entertaining escalation of frights, the kind that make you wiggle and squirm as you alternately laugh at your own gullibility and marvel at the filmmaker’s cunning and craft" - Manohla Dargis, The New York Times.
