The first American Screenings of the award winning short film,
May 26th 6:30 to 8:30pm, at Blank Spaces DTLA
Reception, Film Screening, and Panel Discussion
Sometimes the stake of the game goes beyond victory.
The Three Tomatoes in association with the Los Angeles Creative Pro User Group (LACPUG) are delighted to present the first American screenings of the award-winning Hungarian Short Film “En Passant” written, directed and edited by Kata Olah starring Hungarian film star Dorka Gryllus and Marton Csukas . This beautifully conceived and moving film reveals the often hidden terror of domestic violence. (The film will be screened in NYC on May 18.)
Andor is 13 years old. He has an exceptionally close relationship with his beautiful mum, whose eyes always hold secrets and hint of sadness. To flee from his unstable home and aggressive father, Andor chooses the objective and predictable world of chess. Then suddenly comes the jingle of his mother’s mobile and Andor must face a big decision. Within the shortest period of time the young boy becomes an adult.
The shocking statistics in the U.S., are that 1 out of 3 women have been victims of domestic violence. The film will be followed by a panel discussion with the filmmaker, Kata Olah, and experts in domestic violence.
Join us for a powerful evening.
