Bubble Bath @ KAFF 2021 Festival

We are delighted to announce that Gyorgy Kovasznai's digitally restored feature film Bubble Bath will be featured at this year's Kecskemet Animation Film Festival (KAFF). The screening will take place at 8pm CET on 12th August in the Museum of The Hungarian Naive Artists / courtyard. As the organizers put it: "In this stylistically bold experimental animated documentary musical, which portrays the disillusionment of the young generation of the 1970s in Hungary, painting and documentary are intertwined. Painter Gyorgy Kovasznai was an outstanding figure of Hungarian animation at its prime in the 1970s. This modernist feature film is a forerunner of today’s animated documentaries, which have become a popular genre recently. The main storyline of the film is put on hold several times with the insertion of animated documentary interviews with live audio recordings. The painted musical animation is also emblematic of Kovasznai’s graphically expressive animation style, which radically contradicts the conventional principles of character animation. This film is centred around a love triangle while painting a picture of the streets of Pest. The film’s enthralling musical scores were composed by Janos Masik from the legendary band Kex. In 2021 Bubble Bath was digitally restored in 4K by the experts of the Hungarian National Film Archive/Hungarian Filmlab and with the support of A Season of Classic Films."
