Film Screening: Six Weeks


Zsófi, a defiant teenager on track for a great sporting career, is expecting an unplanned baby and is determined to give the child up for open adoption. When her daughter is born, her body and soul react, and doubts begin to arise. According to Hungarian law, she has six weeks after the baby is born to change her mind.

By avoiding easy didacticism in favour of an aesthetic in tune with the emotions and thoughts of a young girl who is both mature for her age but still youthful in her passion and stubbornness, Ms. Noémi Veronika Szakonyi’s feature-length fiction presents a nuanced story of the young girl’s tribulations in a world where responsbile men went missing.

Director of photography: Zoltán Dévényi
