Fabric of Time (Foszló idő) is a cinematic research into documents, memories and traumas in my family. The film is based on fragments: the family photo archive, cassette recordings of telephone conversations, an abandoned summer house, and the ruthless Soviet-style gymnastics ritual of my father.

I use different image-making and sound-recording technologies as markers of the narrative construction (cassette, 8mm, 16mm, HDV video).

The film is poetic reflection and a collective re-construction of memory in a typical middle-class Hungarian family in the 1980s and in the early 2010s.
