“Spiral” awarded at Warsaw Film Festival

Cecília Felméri’s debut film Spiral won a Special Mention in the Competition 1-2, dedicated to first and second film directors at the Warsaw International Film Festival (October 9-18). “I am really grateful for this award and for being here, for real, in these hard times for everyone”, said Cecília Felméri.

The film starring Bogdan Dumitrache, Alexandra Borbély and Diána Magdolna Kiss had its world premiere in the Polish festival. Spoken in Hungarian, Spiral is produced by Inforg-M & M Film (Hungary) and Hai-Hui Entertainment (Romania).

Cecília Felméri also wrote the screenplay. György Réder is the director of photography, and Péter Politzer is the editor of the film.

Spiral is a psychological drama balancing between realism and horror. A love triangle and a reflection on letting go of the past and on how life and nature’s cycles are connected.

All four seasons on a lake. Bence and Janka live in an old house on the shore. They take care of the lake and make a living from the fees paid to them by people wishing to fish there. Living in this beautiful place would appear to be paradise for Bence and Janka – nature, simplicity and the cyclical change of seasons. But then their relationship starts going sour. Simultaneously, the fish in the lake begin to mysteriously perish. The anglers stop coming and the couple starts having financial difficulties. Bence attempts to find a solution…
