Milky Way - ambient movie
(Tejút - ambient movie)

feature, 35mm, 82 minutes, cinemascope

co-produced with: Germany

PREMIER (HUNGARY): 2007.

Benedek Fliegauf has succeeded in making a film that, much like ambient music, allows the viewer to receive his work on various levels and does not force any concrete interpretation. Reception of a film in this manner creates a kind of metaphysical experience, which fits directly into Fliegauf’s hypnotic-transcendent world, familiar from his earlier films, Forest and Dealer. In addition to being the first example of an ambient film, it may also be considered a work of fine art, which can be presented independently in the galleries of the world.

“I think this film quiets the mind. Milky Way is a peculiar nature film, where we see humans instead of giraffes and penguins.”
Benedek Fliegauf
