Hungary’s internationally renowned film schools are the first step on the way to success for many future filmmakers.
Eötvös Loránd University has a programme for film students, which offers the possibility to finance their final exam in filmmaking. First, the students have to submit their project and if selected then the National Film Institute of Hungary supports them in completing their diploma film.
“The Little Detective” is not Abhishek Singh’s first film, he made the Indian feature film “Unwoven Threads of Kashi”. The film tells a story about an eight-year-old girl named Zsófi who finds a banknote with the word „HELP” written on it. The reason of the main conflict are the parents of the girl, who are about to divorce.
Still, she teams up with her parents to find out which one of them is responsible for the idea of divorce, and the film explores their journey together in this sweet investigation. The movie is written and directed by Abhishek Singh, an international film student at Eötvös Loránd University.
The Director of Photography of the project is a young Hungarian cinematographer, Eszter Galambos, an SZFE (University of Theatre and Film Arts) graduate who has recently worked in the American Television series “Halo” (2022). The production will be made by KMH Film and ELTE Productions.
The mentor of the project is Barnabas Toth, the director of last year’s Oscar nominee film “Akik Maradtak” (“Those who remained”). The film stars Linda Fekete as the mother and Balázs Jerger as the father. Zsófi will be played by Proszenyák Zita, who will debut in this film. The project is currently in post-production and will be presented at the Cannes Film Festival in the student category (LA CINEF).
