The National Film Institute of Hungary is supporting the production of a short film on the childhood of Gábor Piroch, the world-famous Hungarian stuntman, and a documentary on the careers of two of the first female Hungarian MPs, Margit Slachta and Anna Kéthly.
Gábor Piroch is one of the best stuntmen in the world, who starred in a wide variety of blockbusters like “Titanic”, “Die Hard”, “Troy”, “World War Z” and countless other Hungarian and international productions. The short film entitled “Égig érő álmok” will tell one of the most interesting stories of his childhood.
Margit Slachta and Anna Kéthly were two of the most important Hungarian politicians of the 20th century. The two first female Members of Parliament courageously stood up for their principles in the turbulent political situation between the two world wars, during the German occupation and the Soviet rule.
In the past few years, the National Film Institute of Hungary has been providing support for television and streaming projects. They have been part of around one hundred exciting productions recently about important Hungarian figures in a wide range of genres and topics, such as “One for All” about Olympic fencing champion Áron Szilágyi, and “Once Upon a Time in Hungarian Comics” about the family history of legendary artist Marcell Jankovics and the history of Hungarian animation and comic culture.
