Description

Join us for the Famous Firsts Series to see the debut feature films of legendary directors from the Visegrad Four. Experience the passionate radical beginnings of four important cinematic voices.

THE AGE OF DAYDREAMING (1965)

Director: Istvan Szabo

Run Time: 105 min.

Origin: Hungary

An electrical engineer never makes any lasting commitment with a woman until he falls in love with a local celebrity with whom he has never met.

Jancsi Oláh is in the transitional phase between adolescence and adultness. He is born in 1938, and is now getting his first employment as an electronic engineer. On TV he happens to see a young lawyer, Éva Halk, who grabs his attention. In his imagination she is the most interesting woman he ever seen. Jansci is part of a closely knit gang of young friends. They see the older engineers as mediocre, and have grand ideas about developing new inventions together. With changing living conditions the five friends start to grow apart. At a party Jancsi suddenly meets Éva Halk. They fall in love, and find common memories in the engagement in The Pioneer Railway at the age of 12. Both of them also chose to stay in Hungary in '56, when many of their friends fled the country. The sudden death of a friend creates a fear of death for Éva and Jancsi. They start seeing each other as obstacles to their own development, and drift apart.

Please arrive at least ten minutes prior to showtime.

Empty seats will be released to standby patrons after that time.
