THE MAIDEN DANCED TO DEATH (2011) at Fantasporto!

Hungarian cinema comes to Porto during Fantasporto 2012 in Endre Hules' film, THE MAIDEN DANCED TO DEATH (2011).

The film is about two brothers during Communist Hungary who were great dancers and once upon a time danced together. But while one brother kept dancing, the other gave it up. Now they meet twenty years later to dance together again.

I interviewed Endre Hules a year ago before the film was finished. And now here in Fantasporto I will finally see the finished film.

When I interviewed Endre, this is what he had to say about his film:

ENDRE: The Maiden Danced to Death is the story of two brothers, who used to run a dance company together in Hungary during the Communist era. The older one was a rebel, who provoked the authorities until they decided to get rid of him and canceled his passport while he was abroad. The younger one was a conformist and managed to cope and keep the dance studio running. Twenty years later - after the demise of Communism - the older brother returns and their life choices come back to haunt them. The inspiration came from the very real antagonism between the sizeable Hungarian diaspora - mostly political refugees - and those who remained in Hungary. I was always wondering if these suspicions could be resolved somehow so those groups could help each other better. This film is part of that thinking process.
