Winner of NINE Hungarian Film Awards in 2017, this dark and gritty thriller directed by Árpád Sopsits, grapples with an incredible anomaly of crime and punishment as it examines and expands the extraordinary story of the infamously malicious Martfű Murderer. A psychotic killer is on the prowl slaughtering young women, while an innocent man is wrongly accused and sentenced for crimes he could never have committed. When a determined detective arrives on the scene he soon becomes obsessed with the case, while under pressure from the prosecutor to see a man hang. Soon we find ourselves entangled in a web of intricate conspiracy and disturbing drama.

We are delighted to welcome director Árpád Sopsits for a Q&A following the Tuesday screening.
