Summary, etc.:
Using film school equipment, Laszlo Kovacs and Vilmos Zsigmond captured the Soviet crackdown of the 1956 Hungarian Revolt. As refugees, they struggled in the underbelly of Hollywood, and finally broke into the mainstream with their pivotal contributions to cinema in films like Easy Ride, Five Easy Pieces, Paper Moon, Close Encounters of the Third Kind, and The Deer Hunter. An intimate portrait of two giants of modern filmmaking and their deep bond of brotherhood that transcended boundaries.
