Land of Warm Waters

In a universe made up of equal parts of dream and reality, fantastical characters indulge in their own metaphysical introspection using any methods that will allow them to escape a hierarchic system of values and break free of organized oppression.


“We have always considered cinema as a kind of treatment, in which the audience’s unconscious and intelligence are meant to develop a meaning, a story. We are the shamans who accompany them on their Ayahuasca trip. And we feel that we should rebel against the linearity of screenwriting.  Anyone can make a TV series; we cultivate a diversity that is so out of fashion in Hungary.” Brothers Buharov, repubblica.it
