And what a journey the past decade has been following the
Thank you to the Accademia D'Ungheria in Roma (Hungarian Cultural Academy in Rome) for featuring Kovasznai's short film "Nights in the boulevard" (1972) on their Facebook! Kovasznai was a regular of the Budapest bars and cafés featured in "Nights on the boulevard", which so beautifully evokes the meeting places of the intelligentsia in the city in the '70s. The film unfolds through a cumulus of cigarette smoke, both bustling and intimate, familiar but with a tremor of unspoke
