Our latest coproduction with Popfilm, The Citizen, has won the Special Jury Prize Award at The 14th Skip City International Digital Cinema Festival 2017 in Japan.
The film portrays the struggles of a middle-aged refugee name Wilson, and his attempts to find his place in Hungarian society.
The Citizen has previously won the Award of Best Screenplay at the 37th Fantasporto Film Festival in Portugal. Fantasporto rated in Variety as one of the 25 leading international film festivals of the world with all kinds of films, genres and audiences.
Wilson, a man in his late fifties, has been living as a refugee in Hungary for years. He works as a security guard in Budapest and his main desire is to acquire citizenship. The film gives an accurate representation of that intermediate state full of hope and frustration about the naturalisation process that can last up to ten years.
