Hungarian production ‘Blossom Valley’ has won a prize in the Karlovy Vary Film Festival’s East of the West section.
The Hungarian Film Fund said the movie, directed by László Csuja, was commended in the section which rewards first and second feature films by directors. ‘Blossom Valley' is Csuja’s first feature film.
The film was shot using amateur actors Bianka Berényi and László Réti, and tells the story of a young woman living on a housing estate on a city’s outskirts.
On a whim, she steals a baby, and has to find a “father” and a new place to live. She's about to give up when she meets a man living in workers’ hostels, who decides to create a home for them.
'Blossom Valley' was produced with a 62 million HUF (190,860 EUR) grant from the Hungarian Film Fund.
The film will be shown in Hungarian cinemas from the end of summer, and in various locations throughout the world.
