The Hungarian film and theatre director Kornél Mundruczó, with his anything but charming characters performing in hyper-realistic and intimate settings, certainly knows how to unsettle his audience. His explosive mix of professional and amateur actors triggers compassion in those watching, even though they play tough, shocking characters. His latest production is based around the motif of utter defenselessness. The plot is borrowed from the Strugatsky brothers' sci-fi novel, Hard To Be A God. This is also where the uncompromising director got his idea of a God who watches his creation from a distance, just as we avert our eyes from society's darker sides, such as human trafficking. By creating a staged reality show featuring real people on a real stage in a real van, Mundruczó holds up a mirror to the audience: will they, as God-like beings, only watch from the sidelines? Or will they be moved to act?
