The Euphoria of Being

NJ PREMIERE
DOCUMENTARY
Director: Réka Szabó
2019 • 83 minutes • Hungary / Hungarian

Eva Fahidi survived Auschwitz; her mother, father, sister, and 49 family members were killed, and she returned alone to Hungary after the war. When the nonagenarian is asked to participate in a dance theater duet about her life, with acclaimed young dancer Emese Cuhorka, the two women embark on a process of creative interaction on stage, intertwining their bodies and their stories. The horror of Eva’s past and her sustaining exuberance for life are expressed through a performance that defines love and resilience.

This film is brought to you by Dr. Ruth and Gerald Legow

2018 • 6 minutes • United Kingdom / English
