Diaries 1 - 8

  • Hungary

epic - time rediscovered - a 40m2 storyboard - 100 hours of film - editing of multiple superimposed shots - storyteller: coherent construction of individual consciousness - constant self-reflection can even result in schizophrenia - sound added to some journals 20 years later - loose storyline, sharing of emotions and moods, considerations, reflections - he who lives his madness through film cannot be killed

Film journals are constantly being made and edited and end in death - Szirtes's intimate social journals are an epic, multi-layered system, a remarkable reflection of an individual and of contemporary mores.
