A memorial exhibition honoring Hungarian-born producer Andy Vajna opened in Budapest on August 1st.

According to Rmx.news, Vajna’s former friends and colleagues gathered posters from 42 of his movies, personal photos and items from Vajna’s personal collection such as the Golden Globe award he received for the movie Evita in 1997 and the original knives from the Rambo film series.

The exhibition was opened on his birthday. Vajna, born András György Vajna in Budapest in 1944 to a Jewish family, fled Hungary to Canada in 1956 at the age of 12 with the help of the Red Cross.

Vajna was the producer of movies such as Rambo (his first commercial success followed by two more instalments), Total Recall, Air America, Evita and part of the Terminator franchise.

He died on January 20 this year in his native Budapest.
