OPENING NIGHT: Fever at Dawn - ON STAND-BY*
Director: Péter Gárdos • Hungary, Sweden, Israel • 2015 • Hungarian with English subtitles • 110 minutes
Based on the touching story of the director’s parents, the film recounts the love affair between two Hungarian Holocaust survivors recuperating in Sweden in 1945. Diagnosed with lung disease and given six months to live, Gárdos is determined to find love in the short time he has left and writes letters to over 100 Hungarian women being treated at hospitals across the Nordic country.
*Stand-by Tickets: If a film goes on "Stand-By" we will post this information on our website. When a film is on Stand-By we are no longer selling tickets in advance. This does not mean that we are sold out and usually, everyone on Stand-By is able to see the film.
One-hour before show time, we start selling Stand-By tickets at the theater on a first-come, first-served basis. Ten minutes before the film begins, standby patrons are admitted, as space permits until the theater is full. We are usually able to accommodate everyone on Stand-By. If we sell out and are not able to seat everyone, please accept our apologies. Anyone who is unable to be seated will be immediately refunded their ticket price.
