'Treasure City': First Hungarian Full-Length Feature That Debuts On The Net
On April 23rd, 2020, Szabolcs Hajdu's new feature film, Treasure City, will make its debut on vimeo. As a result of the epidemic, the forced closure of cinemas has prompted the creators to uniquely market their recent work on an online platform.

The film was realized within the framework of a special educational project in collaboration with Látókép-Production and the Filmtett Association of Kolozsvár.

The plot takes place overnight and revolves around the issue of dominance, harassment and vulnerability in different human contexts, on the border of imagination and reality, be it a marriage, a friendship, a parent-child or state-citizen relationship.

The main roles are played by Lilla Sárosdi, Domokos Szabó, Lujza Hajdu, Szabolcs Hajdu, Árpád Schilling, Fanni Wrochna, Nóra Földeáki and Orsolya Török-Illyés. Anyone who watches the film will be enriched not only by a meaningful experience but also by the good feeling of supporting independent Hungarian filmmakers.

Szabolcs Hajdu and his team have chosen a pioneering solution for presenting their latest full-length feature film: on April 23rd, the film will debut on vimeo in Hungary and Romania - with optional Romanian and English subtitles.

Treasure City was realized within the framework of a special educational project in cooperation with Látókép-Production and the Filmtett Association of Kolozsvár. The crew and some of the actors consisted of highly experienced film professionals, under whose leadership the students of Romanian and Hungarian film schools could gain experience in making a feature film.

"In recent years, we have led several groups for actors and directors with Orsolya Török-Illyés in a film camp organized by the Transylvanian Filmtett Association. Traditionally, short films are made during the 10 days of the camp, and essentially all film departments of film making - from actors through sound engineers to the production.
