Dutch Film Première LILY LANE during European Film Festival in Amsterdam

Press Release


On Saturday 4 June, the Embassy of Hungary will present the Dutch film premiere of LILY LANE (Liliom ösvény, 2016) in cinema LAB Amsterdam. After the screening, there will be an aftertalk with editor Balázs Budai. LILY LANE is directed by the leading Hungarian filmmaker Bence Fliegauf, who won the Silver Bear at the Berlinale for his previously released film Just the Wind (Csak a szél, 2012).

In the Hungarian drama LILY LANE, Rebeka tries to cope with the sudden death of her mother. She decides to go and find her estranged father and brings her seven year old son Dani with her on this quest. Together with Dani, Rebeka visits places she knew as a child and tells stories from which it is not clear whether they originate from her problematic past or not. The film mixes gloomy lifelike images with colourful flashbacks, and a strong layered sound design. LILY LANE won a Silver Bear at the Berlinale Forum (2016) and the Golden Olive Tree at the European Film Festival in Lecce (2016).
