As part of the European Perspectives Strand, the film will be screened two times, on 1st July at 6.20pm and 2nd July at 1.15pm in the Cineworld Cinema.

1945 (91 mins, 2017)
12 August 1945. The inhabitants of a village in rural Soviet-occupied Hungary are preparing for the town clerk's daughter's wedding, when two Orthodox Jewish men arrive at the railway station with two large trunks. As they silently make their way to town, a growing panic spreads amongst some of the more prominent townsfolk. Ferenc Török's striking monochrome 'Western' is a tense, chilling, beautifully nuanced drama set in a difficult, transitional period in Hungarian history.
Watch the teaser of the film here.
