Gyorgy Kovasznai was one of the most talented artists of the 70's in Hungary. He worked for the leading animation studio called Pannonia, which produced most of the hungarian animated films back then. Yet his works are not well known, not even in Hungary, because he made cartoons for grown ups, full of social impressions and toxic criticism - something unimaginable under the reign of the communist cultural ministry. Kovasznai was also a painter and a writer. He died in 1983. His works are getting more and more famous as Hungarians rediscover hidden treasures of the censored past.
A new exhibition in a small private gallery in the Buda Castle district is now open, showing Kovasznai's paintings. In the film we asked his former collegue and friend Elek Lisziak for a little introduction.
