The Hungarian film Son of Saul, winner of the Grand Prix at the Cannes Film Festival this past May, wins Golden Globe award in the foreign film category. Congratulations to the amazing Cast and Crew!

Dame Helen Mirren was especially happy about this Hungarian success as she handed the award to director László Nemes Jeles. “The Holocaust has become, over the years, an abstraction. For me, it’s more a face, a human face; let’s not forget this face.”- said Nemes Jeles in his speech.

In the coming months he plans to shoot a “dark fairy tale” in Budapest about a young woman before the First World War in Hungary.
