Ferenc Rófusz, Oscar-winning director received the award of ATAFF
At the Alexandre Trauner ART/Film Festival 2020, Ferenc Rófusz and his film, The Last Supper received the first prize in the Fine Art Animation category. Due to the epidemiological situation, the creator was unable to attend the award gala event, so we delivered his award directly to his home.
"The Kossuth Prize-winning artist, who has won the National Artist Award, has forever inscribed his name in the history of universal motion picture, and he deserves a particularly prominent place in Hungarian film history, as his 1980 animated film, The Fly – which is only a 3-minute animated film - became the first Oscar-winning Hungarian film.
The grotesque depiction in his ten-minute short film The Last Supper (2018) contrasts the sublime tone of Leonardo da Vinci's mural with the mundaneness and ordinariness of the present. "
