Synopsis: The play continues at the heart of Blaha Lujza square, yet the National Theatre of Hungary no longer stands... There is an invisible barrier that separates the stone faces of the passers by, the whispers of those who wait, and the music from the deep end of the square. At the crossroads of a heavy past and a bitter present, the masks hold still and the pavement seems to disturb.

The three films presented on this page are part of my current works in progress. The city is the main focus: the work depicts how its motion interlaces with our psychological spaces, and how the perspectives of movement affect anonimity or empathy.
Further ahead stands the metaphore of the city as one living organism, where
humans become cells, forgetting about the motion of the whole organism. What is the common will driving these post-modern cities? How do all these narrative lines interlace? Is there a space where people can meet, out of the synchronicity from it's commercial use?
