A coming of age drama, 2014’s Land of Storms explores the search for sexual identity in a world where homophobia still reigns. The film addresses the issue of homosexuality amidst the fears of stigmatization and marginalization that are very much alive in modern-day Hungary.
“Sociographic topic was the main reason I came to filmmaking,” explains Adam Csaszi. “Not many filmmakers were willing to address what is going on in Hungary. I was upset about that. The role of the Artist is to comment on what is actually happening in their society. Nobody was addressing this in my country. Ever.”
