PREPARATIONS TO BE TOGETHER FOR AN UNKNOWN PERIOD OF TIME is celebrating its world premiere at Venice Days / Le Giornate Degli Autori during Venice International Film Festival 2020. As one of the few films selected, the film by writer-director Lili Horvát will have its North American premiere at this year’s special edition of the Toronto International Film Festival.
PREPARATIONS TO BE TOGETHER FOR AN UNKNOWN PERIOD OF TIME explores the role of projections in love and about the fine line between romance and madness. To what extent do we construct love stories within ourselves? How differently can two people experience the same love? It shows the inner journey of a strong, determined and yet fragile woman: a neurosurgeon who has achieved everything in her career, yet something fundamental is deeply missing from her life. For aesthetic reasons, the director chose to shoot the film on celluloid.
Márta, a 40-year-old neurosurgeon, falls in love. She leaves her shining American career behind and returns to Budapest to start a new life with the man she loves. But she waits for him at the Liberty Bridge in vain – he does not appear at their rendezvous. Márta starts to search for him desperately, but when she finally finds him, the love of her life claims that they have never met before.
Lili Horvát (1982) grew up in Budapest. She studied audio-visual arts at the Sorbonne Nouvelle in Paris and film directing at the University of Theatre and Film in Budapest. THE WEDNESDAY CHILD, Horvát’s first feature won the East of the West Award at Karlovy Vary IFF 2015 and received numerous awards worldwide. In 2016, Horvát co-founded the production company Poste Restante, which produced her second feature, PREPARATIONS TO BE TOGETHER FOR AN UNKNOWN PERIOD OF TIME.
PREPARATIONS TO BE TOGETHER FOR AN UNKNOWN PERIOD OF TIME is produced by Poste Restante, Dóra Csernátony, Lili Horvát, Péter Miskolczi with the support of the National Film Institute Hungary.
