“After the success of my historical film noirs, I thought it’s about time Hungary came out with a horror film too. Therefore, my creative producer and partner, Gábor Hellebrandt, and I…conjured up the ghosts from a time of great loss in Hungarian history, directly after World War I, during the Spanish Flu pandemic. In our film, the ghosts of our painful past overrun a Hungarian village to which a post mortem photographer arrives, who is concerned with death the same way the genre of horror is. The photographer then meets a little girl and perhaps his own unconscious mind.” - Director Péter Bergendy

Throughout his long career, Péter Bergendy has worked as the editor-in-chief of the Hungarian issue of German Cinema magazine, as academic researcher for the Hungarian Film Institute, and as a prominent editor and later director in Hungarian film, commercial and television. His previous film, Trezor (2018), which won eight Hungarian Film Awards, was the first ever Hungarian TV-film nominated for an International Emmy Award. Post Mortem was Hungary’s Official Selection for the Academy Awards.
