NATURAL BACKLIGHT

-Portrait of Péter Nádas-

The film invites the audience to follow Péter Nádas- one of the most celebrated contemporary novelists- not only at public events but also after he steps out of the spotlight: showing Nádas writing in his study; his life in the small rural village of Gombosszeg; and, centrally, the author telling his own story – reflecting upon his past, explaining the importance of the stations of a writer’s journey, talking about his successes and failures, his relationships with other writers. While recalling the events of his life he is also exploring the process of creating his own world and his unique language of sensibility.
