Director's Biography
Ildikó Enyedi
Ildikó Enyedi was born in Budapest in 1955. She studied economics and film directing at the University of Budapest and in Montpellier. Between 1977 and 1985 she was a member of the underground art collective Indigo, where she cultivated conceptual and performance art.  Later she worked at Béla Balázs Studio, the only independent film studio in Eastern Europe before 1989, where she made several short films. Her feature debut, My 20th Century (1989), won the Camera d'Or at the Cannes Film Festival. She went on to make films such as Magic Hunter (1994), Tamás and Juli (1997) and Simon, the Magician (1999). Teaching at the Budapest Faculty of Theatre and Film since the late 1980s, it took Enyedi 18 years to return to directing a feature film: In Body and Soul (2017) earned her the Golden Bear and the FIPRESCI Award in Berlin. Responsible for the Hungarian adaptation of the series In Therapy, she now presents The Story of My Wife (2021), an adaptation of the eponymous novel by Hungarian writer Milán Füst.
