Bosszúdal or “Revenge Song” Tells the tale of murderous love. Taking place in a forest we watch as Love is resurrected from the earth and trace it’s line back to the birth of the first murderous impulse. Makranczi Zalan (From the Hungarian National Theater) accompanies our singer Oláh Annamária in enacting this tale. He even let us dig him into his own live grave.

The guys are shot against a backdrop of hundreds of maps printed in negative, and shot through a large plastic screen of overlayed topographical representations.

11) Agent Fresco: Silhouette Palette

The Icelandic quartet Agent Fresco were here in Budapest doing a gig arranged by Soundkitchen who asked us if we wouldn’t be interested in trying to do something while they were here. We made a few calls and arranged a quick shoot an hour or two before the gig in the nearby ‘Design Terminal’, (a 1950s bus terminal now acting as a center for culture and design). Throw in a bag full of Audio cassettes I found scattered on the streets the day before and you get our own little light bulb universe.

10) Quimby: Legyen vörös

We had wanted to shoot with Quimby for some time, and were in fact talking it over when Kiss Tibi came and sat at the table next to us. I reminded him that we had worked together many years earlier and explained our idea. Thankfully he was excited as we were about the whole thing, and the idea circulated back to the rest of the band.
This is just around the time of Quimby’s 20th anniversary, when they had their stadium anniversary concert.
Again we wanted to do something narrative, somewhat like what happened with the Hangmás shoot except with more stories. We built up an old nineties style bar. and populated it with players from the Grund Színház, Budapest’s premiere improvisation theater company.
In the end it was as Kis Tibi described it, a miraculous moment. A kind of Live private concert and theater happening at once. An event that happens and then disappeared into thin air. Of course that is why we brought the cameras.

Additionally you can find some interviews with the band made for us by Szabó Szonja here and here.

9) Nouras Motoc: O cafea amara

We have heard Nouras’s voice and his guitar drifting down the budapest streets for some time now. More often than not near tram stops or train stations. We took him down to the front of the old Bem Mozi and asked him to play us a song. He uses a single battery powered amplifier from which everything is broadcast, usually with a dreamy dose of reverb. The song ‘O cafea amara’ likens life to a bitter cup of coffee. He sings it with a bitter sweet lilt.
