Interkozmosz – Film about a sci-fi geek

    Interkozmosz-mediaFilm about a sci-fi geek? Yes, at last!

    The 20-minute short entitled “Interkozmosz” will be shot in Hungary in November, its screenwriter,
    director and composer is Bela Banhegyi, and Andras Szoke (the most popular figure of Hungarian
    underground film-making) plays the main role.

    In the story, Bandi (Andras Szoke) is a 51-year old fanatic sci-fi fan that grinds his days lonely in a
    small Hungarian village by subsisting on the repair of electronic devices as a self-employed. Since his
    childhood he has collected everything that is related to space research, astronomy and science
    fiction but his devotion started growing exceptionally when the country’s exclusive space
    telecommunications ground station was built near the village when he was 15. He is obsessed that
    the station receives and broadcasts extra-terrestrial transmissions therefore his greatest dream is to
    enter the facility once. In spite of the unsuccessful 35 years that have passed, innumerable petitions
    and experiments his devotion has remained unbroken. Owing to the film we can track one of Bandi’s
    Sundays by getting acquainted with his individual views and closed world: his unusual routines, awe-
    inspiring collection of relics, his radio broadcasting station furnished at the parish and his secret
    room guarded by 7 locks.

    As regards to distribution, the makers of the film would like to present the completed work at
    international cultural and film festivals, television channels and the most popular video sharing

    Under the auspices of the Indiegogo campaign the Interkozmosz logo and wallpaper can be
    downloaded free of charge and the makers remunerate for the supports of 10, 25, 50 and 100 dollars
    in various forms (downloadable soundtrack, poster, showing the name of the supporter in the end
    credits, …).

    The domain has been reserved already where for example Bandi’s full list of relics
    will be available.

    What can be known about the tunes of the film is that they show the marks of ambient and
    space/synth music, are shaped on analogue synthesizers and are performed by Bela Banhegyi and
    The Outsiders.  The overture of Interkozmosz (Ghostwalk) had its premier in Terry Hawke’s radio
    programme, the Chill Out Sessions not long ago.

    Despite the low budget, the makers committed themselves to quality the proof of which is the
    creative work produced by Zoltan Feher with the contribution of Banhegyi: its style and atmosphere
    represent the good old days where traditional, hand-painted posters were produced for the films.
    Owing to the fact that no film has been made on sci-fi fans yet, the makers expect strong interest in
    connection with the international preliminary promotion.

    The trailer will come out in December and the premier will take place in February.
