László Kovács, 1933-2007


Vitez said...

"Torn from the Flag" was Laszlo Kovacs' last film. He contributed to this film artistically and historically. This is his last film, and yet it contains some of his earliest work!...footage shot by him during the Hungarian Revolution of 1956 against the communist system.

"Kovacs is regarded by many as one of cinematography's greats and yet has never garnered his own Oscar. An Oscar for Best Documentary awarded to this film would not only recognize its quality but would also celebrate, albeit posthumously, his lifetime of extraordinary achievement."
