Private Project

Cinema Inferno

The year is 1949, and Hungary has once again descended into darkness. Now in total control of the country, Mátyás Rákosi obeys his Soviet masters and prepares to stage the most spectacular show trial that the country has ever seen. A production of such scale not only requires scriptwriters and actors but also cameramen and directors.

Director Biography - Tamas Novak

investigative journalist and documentary filmmaker

In the last 10 years I made more than 30 documentaries and commercials as a producer and director. In 2010 we made a documentary about Bela Biszku (Crime Unpunished), who was one of Hungary's bloody communist-era ministers after the 1956 revolution. The film received huge internal and international echo. These years we are mainly focusing on the current situation in Ukraine, the match-fixing industry and international food industry.
