Réka Anna Szakály is a Hungarian filmmaker and production designer based in Budapest. She obtained her masters degree in Animation at the Moholy-Nagy University in 2020. Reduction (2021) has been screened at more than 40 international festivals and has been selected for the
BAFTA students award shortlist.
Inspired by a factory town populated by abandoned buildings, Reduction is a post-apocalyptic world where two friends dream of The Other Side – a seemingly beautiful and peaceful island that exists worlds away from the hardship and strife they know. However, when one friend becomes enamoured with a strange yet familiar creature, the bond between two friends is broken and only a dream remains.
