Adventures of Candide - Fear Leader

Director:Zsuzsanna Kreif, Balázs Turai


Run time:7'


Candide finds himself interrogated in a North-Optimistanic prison. He learns about the legend of the Dear Leader and becomes so enthusiastic that he asks for citizenship. Hungarian animator Zsuzsanna Kreif creates an insane and paranoid world loosely inspired in Voltaire’s Candide. The result is an explosion of color and sound, a feast to the senses, filled with a deadly sense of humor and satire in an age where dictatorial behavior is on the rise. The film is part of a series of works that are bound to become very influential.
