Guerilla

Guerilla

It’s August of 1849, and the Austrian forces are crushing down the Hungarian rebels, who took up guns to gain independence from the Habsburg Empire. Barnabás is desperately searching for his militant brother amidst a summer landscape inhabited by atrocity and beauty. As he comes across his injured brother’s retreating unit, Barnabás is forced to join the guerillas, carefully withholding that he had avoided the military draft. A pervasive and minimalistic portrait of empty shells of men and women, living on borrowed time, on the edge of looming defeat. A sensorial tale of lingering death, devoid of any pseudo-heroic ambiance.
