Gábor Herendi managed to do something three times, that other Hungarian directors would probably give an arm for having done once: with each 'A Kind of America', its sequel, and 'Hungarian Vagabond' he drew half a million viewers to Hungarian cinemas.

Three Hungarian titles will feature this year at the 67th Berlinale: 'On Body and Soul’, '1945’ and 'Volcano Island’. They are quite different in many ways, but they have one clear connection: Péter Benjámin Lukács, the young and talented sound engineer who, by the way, doesn’t like the job title. One of the most promising and busy men in his field of work, Péter has a rich and colourful portfolio: animated short films, experimental pieces, sketch films, features and documentaries are already tied to his name, and he’s still looking for new territories to discover.
