Red Psalm Film Poster


Hungarian filmmaker Miklós Jancsó directs this socialist paean depicting the rise and fall of a peasant revolt. Winner of the Best Director Prize at the 1972 Cannes Film Festival, the film - famously shot in just 28 long takes - recounts the story of a peasant uprising in Hungary in the earliest days of socialism in the 1890s, delivering an exuberantly expressive essay on the nature of revolution and the underlying issues of oppression, morality and violence.
