Nemes Jeles’s 'Sunset' To Premiere At Venice Film Festival
László Nemes Jeles’s second feature after Son of Saul, which won an Oscar in 2016, is competing at the Venice Film Festival, the National Film Fund said.

The film made with an international cast of professional and amateur actors tells the story of a young Hungarian girl who investigates the fate of her family and the Budapest family shop circa 1913.

Nemes Jeles has worked with much of the crew from Son of Saul.

The Hungarian Film Fund supported Sunset (Napszállta) with a 1.59 billion forint (EUR 4.8m) grant. Even before its world premiere, distributors from nearly 70 countries bought the film.

Sunset will be screened in Hungarian cinemas on Sept. 27.
