Downstream (Szél Viszi), 35', 2019
Graduation film at University of Theater and Film Arts, Budapest, MA in directing documentary movies.
Somewhere in the barren countryside, a young girl is trying to accomplish the impossible. Vivien,
taken away from her mother as a child spent most of her life drifting from one adoptive
family to another, finding her only solace in a militaristic youth community. Now, as she turns 18,
she decides to stand on her own two feet, to change her life for the better. She dreams of a
decent job, a loving partner, and the reuniting with her mother. But as a distant, online suitor
shows up, Vivien realizes that she cannot have it all. She is strong and ready to make decisions.
But is it really possible to change the fate one had inherited?
