If there was one true Hungarian blockbuster in the 1970s, then Johnny Corncob was undoubtedly be it. At just 32 years of age, Marcell Jankovics touched on one of the most important topics in Hungarian cultural history. The results speak for themselves: in the 12 months following its 1973 premiere, more than 1.5 million viewers saw the film at the cinema. Marking 150 years since the birth of Sándor Petőfi, the first feature length Hungarian animated film displayed both the decorative art spectacle of Hungarian folk traditions and pop-art visuals, though it was also inspired by the Beatles film the Yellow Submarine, which had revitalised the animation genre.

In Hungarian, without subtitles

The discussions before and after the screening will be conducted in Hungarian.

Presented by: Müpa Budapest
  • Host
    Anna Ida Orosz
