THE WIND

Winner of the Palme d’Or for Best Short Film at Cannes 1996, Marcell Iványi’s The Wind restages Lucien Hervé’s photo “Les trois femmes” and then pans to reveal a distressing reality just outside the photograph. The Hungarian director paints a sobering look at post war Hungary in a single 360° shot.

THE LIGHTHOUSE

[Rediscovered] After premiering at Rotterdam 2019 and having a run at New York’s Film at Lincoln Center earlier this year, MUBI is excited to exclusively present a new restoration of Maria Saakyan’s The Lighthouse.
