Feminist enthusiasm, political disenchantment and a distrust of science - these are the volatile ingredients of My 20th Century. Dorothy Segda essays three roles in the film. It begins with the birth of twin girls to a Budapest mother (Dorothy Segda) in 1880. Orphaned early on, the girls are forced to sell matches on the streets until both are adopted by two separate families.

Flash forward to 1900: Having lost track of one another, the grown-up twins take separate compartments on the Orient Express. One of the girls (Segda again) has become the pampered mistress of a wealthy man; the other (Segda yet again) is a bomb-wielding anarchist.

Director Ildiko Enyedi evidently intended My 20th Century to be an allegorical statement concerning the status of women in the modern mechanical age. The more technological advances made by Edison, the more confused the twins become in establishing their own roles in an advancing civilization.

This film will be screened at Sri Sarathi Studios on the 27th of April at 6:30 pm. It is a 100 mins film and is directed by Ildiko Enyedi. The cast consists of Dorothy Segda, Oleg Jankowaski,
Gabor Mathe and Peter Andorai. The film has picked up a few awards including Author's Prize at The National Film Festival (1989). Please contact Prakash Reddy of Hyderabad Film Club at 2373-0841, 93910-20243 for further details.
