Laszlo Nemes wrote history with Son of Saul by winning the first Golden Globe Award in the Hungarian cinema. The picture is seemingly unstoppable in this award-season, next stop is the Academy Awards where the movie already got on to the shortlist in the category of Best Foreign Language Film.

In accepting the Golden Globe for Best Foreign Language Film, first-time feature director Laszlo Nemes said in his short speech, that “The Holocaust has become over the years an abstraction. For me, it’s more of a face we must not forget.” 

The Hungarian Filmlab has proudly taken part in the post-production of Son of Saul, the whole analogue and digital process took place in our lab. Congratulations to the creators to the prestigious award, we couldn’t be happier!
