Rijneke & van Leeuwaarden


G. Altorjay


In a commune in HAMBURG – luxurious city in the ‘civilized’ West – the roles have been reversed drastically: The men look after the children while the women earn a living and are in charge. The female machismo has finally come to life.

Gabor Altorjay, born 1946 comes from Budapest and has lived in West Germany since 1967. There he studied theatre and sociology. Since 1980 he has been living in Hamburg, the city which inspired the script for his first film, TSCHERWONEZ, made in 1982 with the support of ‘Das Kleine Fersehspiel’. He is a regular guest of the Rotterdam Film Festival.
