This year’s Oscar gala was held – Hungarian time – in the dawn of 29 February. After 35 years László Nemes Jeles’ Son of Saul not only got into the finalists of the foreign language film category, but also won the Oscar for Best Foreign Film!

“Even in the darkest hours of mankind, there might be a voice within us that allows us to remain human. That is the hope of this film” – said the director in his Oscar acceptance speech.

The costum designer of the film is Edit Szűcs, teacher at MOME’s Textile Department, and Tünde Bényei made the aging of the dresses, for the authentic depiction of the period. The film’s determining sound effect is the work of Tamás Zányi, teacher of the MOME Media Design Department, who won the Vulcan Award last May for his technical collaboration to the creation of the film.
