Zoltán Huszárik (born József Zoltán Huszárik, May 14, 1931 – October 15, 1981) was an influental Hungarian film director, screenwriter, visual artist and occasional actor, an acclaimed auteur of the European modern art film.
Huszárik was born in the small village of Domony, Hungary. His father died when he was two years old. Being an only child, Huszárik had an adoring relationship with his widowed mother. His background had a great influence on his work.
He was accepted to the Hungarian School of Film and Theatrical Arts, but was expelled in 1952 because his family was blamed to be Kulaks. He took on different jobs, when—after a seven-year hiatus—he was again accepted to the film school in 1959. In the same year he made his first student film, a short entitled Játék/Game about two prisoners playing chess with the shadow of their bars when the sun shines unto their cell. Huszárik’s graduation film was another short entitled Groteszk/Grotesque in 1963… read more
dp in both films was Janos Toth (who i adore) so you can check his Eternal Movie (he directed it) and few his projects - Igézet (1963 ,directed by István Bácskai Lauró), Testamentum (1965, István Ventilla) and you might like Tisza-Fall Sketches by István Gaál (not Janos Toth there but i thought it's beautiful) and the rest of Huszarik + Karoly Makk
