The short fiction film by Konrad Kultys was named the best Visegrad short film at the XVIII BuSho Film Festival.

BuSho Film Festival was established by a group of young film enthusiasts in 2004. Since then, it has gradually grown, gaining increasing publicity and popularity among viewers curious about short productions made by emerging artists. In addition to film screenings, the audience in Budapest can expect numerous conferences, exhibitions, and workshops. The festival is the perfect conclusion of a film-filled summer in Hungary.

One of the productions featured in this year’s program has been Konrad Kultys’ award-winning short. The protagonist of Stagnant is Adam, a tough skinhead who ignores his disability and tries to dominate his loved ones. His brother – and caretaker – decides to change jobs, forcing Adam to re-examine his situation and face his own limitations.
