Panic

Hungary, 1979 (MIFF 1980, Programme 5)

Director: Sándor Reisenbüchler

A science fiction story based on Karel Capek's novel "War of the Salamanders". Wrapped up in the thrilling story is the question: are we humans mature enough to appropriately control the vast array of technical devices and equipment available to us? Aren't we becoming too technical-minded, obsessed with achievement?
