Photographed by László Dudás

Private Hungary 6

Through the works of D-Film and Photographed by László Dudás may we follow the life of filmmaker László Dudás, from the late ’20s for almost a 50-year long period.

The film diary is a special genre, since it makes the personal time visible, and so bridges the ages of youth and elderly as a novel. László Dudás could not become a professional film director, but he was so passionate towards the industry, that as an architect, he became a set-designer of the Film Factory. Many films and buildings preserve his efforts, while he worked on his own movies too, for the sake of coming ge nerations. The second part of the life history film of László Dudás, who shot films from 1928. From the man y intriguing Dudás silent films emerges the Deadly Spring, which is much earlier than the well-known sound film of the novel by Zilahy, featuring Karády and Jávor. This is followed by the vision of Italy in the 30s, and later we may see the secret recordings of the 1956 revolution in the home movie of Dudás. The Dudás films are joined together by Tibor Szemző’s music composition.
