A coming-of-age story for two „boys” who are 70 years apart. They are both preparing for the greatest day of their lives: their Bar Mitzvah. For 13-year-old Shalom this is a natural event but for the 83-year-old Gyuri, it’s a dream 70 years in the making. Through their preparation for a spiritual celebration, the boy becomes the teacher and tries to restore the old man’s faith and trust. The innocent 13-year-old boy, Salom, is filled with dreams and hopes and reminds Gyuri of his own lost childhood.

MIGNON (2019)

Mignon is sweet, sweet as Marika. With her childlike soul, Marika lives to dance and dances to overcome her lost childhood.



An investigational documentary about the digital nomad lifestyle turns into an intimate conversation between mother and daughter over countries and years. Images from the family archive complete this mother-daughter relation portrait, a personal film that also raises universal themes about internal freedom, happiness, motherly responsibility, and everything in between.


In the 60’s, 70’s, during the so-called communist time there was a Grand Dame of the fashion industry in Budapest. Clara Rotschild was running a Paris style haute couture salon in the city. It is still an unsolved puzzle, what was her secret and the price of the same being able to maintain this exclusive position. She was neither an educated designer nor a cutter or a tailor, but in spite of it she was considered to be a genius of her field.
