LIFFe / Kings & Queens

Acclaimed Hungarian director György Pálfi (Taxidermia) drew inspiration for his dystopic tale about a family’s dark history from Stanislav Lem’s iconic novel of the same name.

Péter is in his late thirties when he thinks he recognises his father in a documentary on a mysterious accident. His father deserted communist Hungary in the 1970s, a criminal offence under that regime, and has not been heard from since. Péter travels to America and, after an eventful investigation, finds his father and his new family. The reunion offers them plenty of experiences and teaches both father and son some important lessons. Also, as a consequence, the world is informed that the mute universe has spoken and that we are not alone.

“We had to depart from the scientific historical anecdotes because they wouldn’t fit into the frame of a feature film /…/. Unlike Lem, we didn’t put the emphasis on whether the scientists are able to decode the messages coming from outer space, but rather on how to bring the human issues with those of the universe on a common denominator.” (György Pálfi)

György Pálfi
Born in 1974 in Budapest. He drew international attention with his writer-director feature debut Hukkle, honoured with a European Film Award. His second feature, Taxidermia, quickly achieved notoriety for its kinkiness and violence. Pálfi's movies won numerous prestigious film awards.
