Pajer Róbert: Merénylet ∙ The Assassination (2018)

Program by Film-Virage Kulturális Egyesület

Our guest is the film’s costume designer: Zsuzsa Pártényi

moderator: Miklós Horváth

Empress Elisabeth Amalie Eugenie of Austria, most commonly known as Sisi, is a highly respected figure in Hungarian history. Dozens of films have been made about her life, but none of them have dealt with her tragic death in detail. The fifty-minute-long film investigates the events leading up to the beloved Austrian empress and Hungarian queen’s assassination by an Italian anarchist, faithfully depicting the tense atmosphere of the turn of the century Europe.

Our guest is the film’s costume designer, Zsuzsa Pártényi, who has worked on many other Hungarian films as well, such as Eldorada, Before the Bat’s Flight Is Done, Dream Brigade, Meteo, a Dollybirds and 6:3 Play It Again Tutti. After the screening, we will talk about the designer’s career, The Assassination, and the exciting world of historical movies.

All films are either subtitled or dubbed in Hungarian.
