Lili Horvat’s striking noir-tinged second feature is pitched somewhere between the worlds of Alfred Hitchcock and Krzystof Kieslowski. Marta (Natasa Stork) is a 40-year-old neurosurgeon. At a medical conference in New Jersey, she meets Janos (Viktor Bodo). They make a date to meet one month later at the Liberty Bridge in Budapest. She drops everything and flies there. He doesn’t show up. When she confronts him, he claims never to have met her. What follows is a multi-layered rumination on love, fate and the blurry lines between desire, obsession and reality.

This screening includes a Q&A with Writer and Director Lili Horvat.
