Luca Tóth's new film, Mr. Mare (Lidérc úr) is a surreal animated chamber play, set in a ‘haunted’ claustrophobic space, in which we witness the dynamics of unrequited love as we follow the relationship of an oddly codependent pair.
The film was entirely made at Boddanim Studio in Budapest, Hungary.
'Mr. Mare' will have its world premiere at the Berlin International Film Festival in February 2019.
Luca's previous movie 'Superbia' debuted at Cannes Semaine de la Critique and screened at more than 80 festivals worldwide.
