Milestone x Open Books – Spotlight: Péter Gárdos

In the framework of the Spotlight cultural event series writer-filmmaker Péter Gárdos talked to Milestone alumni Marcell Sükösd-Kósa, a few weeks before the publication of his new book.

Péter Gárdos – Béla Balázs Prize-winning film director and writer, was born in Budapest in 1948. His most memorable films are ‘Uramisten’, Whooping Cough, Scorpion Eats Gemini for Breakfast and The Porcelain Doll. His works have won numerous awards at major film festivals around the world. In his first novel, he wrote the true story of his parents’ love, entitled Fever at Dawn. The book, which has been translated into thirty-six languages, was made into a film. His other novels include Seven Dirty Days and The Royal Game. His latest book, The Brief Happiness of Ignác Semmelweis, was published on 26 September. Spotlight is a joint series of events organised by Milestone Knowledge Port and Open Books in autumn 2022. The four evenings of the series will feature authors from Open Books, who will be interviewed by a Milestone alumni about their work and their latest books. The collaboration is inspired by the parallels and synergies identified in the work and ambitions of the two organisations.
