This experimental film documents an encounter between two much celebrated and very deceased Hungarian film directors. Michael Curtiz (1886-1962), the Oscar-winning director of Casablanca, responsible for shooting more than 150 movies during Hollywood's Golden Age. Gábor Bódy (1946-1985), in contrast, was a pioneer of experimental filmmaking and film language, as well as a renowned academic theorist in his field.
Our two spirits are locked in to the metaphysical screening room of their minds and struggle to make sense of their new reality and its creative possibilities. With two fundamentally different cinematic approaches, a prickly dialog plays out between two geniuses as they hold forth on life, work and art, while we are immersed in an associative collage of Hollywood classic and avant-garde imagery.

这部实验电影讲述了两位去世的匈牙利名导的一次相遇。因《卡萨布兰卡》获奥斯卡奖的Michael Curtiz 在好莱坞黄金时代拍摄了超过了150部电影,而Gábor Bódy则是一位实验电影和影像语言创新的先锋,也是此领域著名的学术理论家。
