László Nemes’s feature debut, the drama Son of Saul, was a true sensation. The winner of numerous accolades, including the Grand Prix at Cannes and Oscar for Best Foreign Language Film, it expressed the younger generation of directors’ urgent need to abandon the depleted melodramatic portrayal of the Holocaust and find for the subject a novel, dynamic cinematic idiom. Nemes’s second full-length film, Sunset, is set in Budapest at the beginning of the 20th century. The drama follows the 20-year-old Irisz Leiter, who arrives in the city after spending her adolescence years in an orphanage and is suddenly confronted with her past and the dark secrets shrouding her family.

László Nemes

Born in Budapest, László Nemes moved to Paris as a boy with his father, the film and theatre director András Jeles. Following his studies of history, international relations and screenwriting, be began working as an assistant to the Hungarian cinema legend Béla Tarr, at the same time fine-tuning his own specific style by making remarkable short movies. After completing his studies of film directing in New York, Nemes returned to Paris as a participant in the scholarship programme arranged by Cinéfondation, where he and Clara Royer conceived the script for his phenomenal debut Son of Saul (2015), a masterpiece that to a certain degree redefined the approach to the cinematic rendition of the Holocaust.
