Dividing Bar

By Gazdag Gyula, a mainly documentary filmmaker -- his documentary short The Selection is great -- who at one point had nine films that were being actively suppressed. In some places a little reminiscent of Makk Károly's Love and Another Way, in others of Death of a Bureaucrat by Tomás Gutiérrez Alea, who also gave us Memories of Underdevelopment, Hasta cierta punto and Strawberry and Chocolate. This isn't quite in the same league but it's definitely good, original and worthwhile.
