[Dir. Whitehall, Co-Produced with Brucke, 2018, Short Film, Super 16mm/8mm, 20:17 min, b/w with Colour]
‘Elegant Flower’ is a diaspora story that follows the life of a Hungarian refugee over the course of his 60th birthday weekend. Burdened by the separation of his beloved family and little sister, Zoltán Király engages in activities to bridge this chasm of geography and time.
Incorporating beautiful 8mm found film and distinctive Toronto landscapes, one is given a subtle revelation and connection into this quiet and passionate man's internal struggle.
This project has the generous support of the Toronto Arts Council.
