A psychologist and a painter interpret the works of young autistic people at an exhibition opening. Their conversation seems to target the abstract paintings, however, their real topic is the elusive and constantly changing dynamics of their relationship. While they walk through the gallery, it becomes clear, that they have as many difficulties talking about their feelings, as the artists themselves. Director Viktoria Szemeredy will be attending the screening.
Viktoria Szemerédy is a film director, writer, psychotherapist, and intensive care doctor, in reverse chronological order. Her past professions helped her develop a diagnostic capability that penetrates the surface and an understanding of deep human emotions. Viktoria’s films question axioms and dogmas with which we live, generating a connection with the audience not necessarily only at an intellectual, but at a subconscious level as well. Built on her previous two degrees, Viktoria recently completed her MA in scriptwriting and directing at Staffordshire University, England. ‘Metaphorms’, her MA project, was screened at Raindance Film Festival in 2019.
