Film Website



While fleeing from Syria, Aryan is shot and wounded on the border between Serbia and Hungary. Still in shock, the injured man discovers that he can use the power of thought to levitate. In the refugee camp, Dr. Stern hears of Aryan’s supernatural power. He smells a lucrative opportunity and would like to sell the young man to rich patients as proof of miracle healing. But is Aryan in reality an angel maybe or an even higher being? Jupiter’s Moon is a fantastic mix of political parable and sarcastic superhero flick.


For his debut film Pleasant Days, KORNÉL MUNDRUCZÓ (*1975) won the Silver Leopard at the 2002 Locarno Festival. In 2017, his adaptation of Gerhart Hauptmann's Die Weber was a guest production at Hamburg's Thalia Theater. His film Underdog was shown in 2014 at the FILMFEST HAMBURG.
