This compilation of six short films will be of particular interest to students of cinematic movements in Hungary and Eastern Europe. The six directors whose 1970s black and white film school work is gathered here went on to form the core of "the Budapest school" of Hungarian filmmaking. Highlights are "The Audition" by Andras Jeles about a youth preoccupied with dreams of fame, and Pal Wilt's socially consciouss piece about an ancient town whose center is being destroyed in order to make way for "an international youth center." The other films are by Gabor Body, Georgy Feher, Istvan Darday and Bela Tarr.
