The story of the innocent maid accused of theft, deported and in her despair preparing to commit suicide was cinematically depicted by Mihály Kertész (who later became worldfamous as Michael Curtiz) employing attractive off-set locations and parallel montage technique. This is the only surviving film showing the acting of Mari Jászai, a monumental figure in Hungarian theatre. The folk theatre adaptation filmed in the picturesque Transylvanian landscape and involving extras dressed in the magnificent local peasant costumes was made in Cluj-Napoca, at the Proja film factory founded by Jenő Janovics. Attila Pacsay composed the incidental music.

In cooperation with National Film Institute Hungary - Film Archive.

The event takes place as part of Urania's program series FILM/MUSIC. For its program, please click here.
