Mathias, Mathias
(Mátyás, Mátyás)

documentary, video, 13 minutes

co-produced with: Romania


„King Mathias died in Vienna around the end of October in 1490. He was poisoned. One evening he ate some figs and by the morning he was no more. He was already very ill during the night, and in the morning… he was dead.”
A 13-minute animation documentary about the residents of Kolozsvár: how much do they know about the famous sovereign, King Mathias, who was born in their city?
„And the only other thing I can say about him is that the statue of King Mathias is sitting on a horse.
That’s it. What else is there to say?”
