My Twentieth Century

From Ildikó Enyedi (On Body and Soul), this magical film spins a tale of twins who are born in 1880 Budapest at the same moment Thomas Edison presents his electrical lightbulb to the world. Shot in gorgeous monochrome, it’s at once a romantic love story, a fairy tale, an erotic riddle and an inventory of new technology.

Presented as part of Cinema Rediscovered on Tour, a Watershed project with support from BFI awarding funds from The National Lottery.
