Fényes szelek by Miklós Jancsó 

Paralleling the dramatic student protests and riots that were exploding across the world in the 1960s at the time the film was made, Fényes szelek, (The Confrontation) is a story of protest and rebellion in 1947 Hungary when the Communist Party have just taken power.

Jancso’s first colour film is another virtuoso display by a director at the peak of his powers, and eloquently explores the complex issues and inherent problems of revolutionary democracy.
