Frontline Club, 13 Norfolk Place, London W2 1QJ
To commemorate the 60th anniversary of the 1956 Hungarian revolution, Central and Eastern European London Review have invited the renowned Hungarian director Márta Mészáros, along with actor Zsuzsa Czinkóczi, star of several of her films, to London's Frontline Club.
2.00pm 'Like Something Out of Shakespeare: the Stalin Years in Hungary,' talk by CEEL Editor Robin Ashenden.
3.00pm Diary for My Children (1984): Juli, a young orphan, returns to Hungary from Russia to live with her aunt, a rigidly committed Stalinist who will play a sinister role in the political upheaval that follows. Meanwhile, Juli leads her teenage life: rebelling, falling in love with the cinema and the opposite sex, and trying to find her bearings in a country spiralling radically off-course.
5.20pm Diary for My Loves (1987): In this sequel, we see Juli growing to adulthood through the seismic event of Stalin's death, experiencing to the full the miraculous, fleeting thaw that follows and discovering her own voice as a film-maker.
7.30pm Q&A with Márta Mészáros and star Zsuzsa Czinkóczi, moderated by Central European film specialist Dr Peter Hames.
