KIX - The Story of a Street Kid

Directed by: Bálint Révész, Dávid Mikulán
Cinematography: Dávid Mikulán
Producers: Viki Réka Kiss, András Pires Muhi, Ágnes Horváth-Szabó
Production: Elf Pictures, Gallivant Film

Having no room of his own, Sanyi instinctively spreads his living space into the outside world, using anything or situation that comes to hand to amuse himself. He’s an unruly, adrenalin-dependent anarchist, who’s not afraid to say exactly what he thinks. Through 10 years of his life, he moves through all values of the opposing spectrums. We see him as he goes from repressed to the oppressor, from little brother to older brother, from careless scoundrel to responsible caretaker, from street kid to stay-at-home nihilistic adolescent.

The project was developed within the Ex Oriente Film workshop. The premiere is expected in 2023.
