Interview: Gábor Reisz – Explanation for Everything

Winner of the top prize in the Orizzonti section at this year’s Venice Film Festival, Gábor Reisz‘s expansive, multi-viewpoint slow-burn features a deep political and moral divide that stretches well beyond the limits of regular Magyars (Hungarians) dining room table or and sensationalist news headlines. Explanation for Everything is a sharp, observational third feature film for the filmmaker. I got to sit down with Gábor Reisz at the 2023 Marrakech International Film Festival and talked about the DNA of his characters, the idea of having multiple POVs in his blueprint and the idea that a low-budget production perhaps boosted his creativity.
