Istvan Szabo

‘Confidence’ Man

Hungarian filmmaker Istvan Szabo and the nature of trust.

Special To The Jewish Week

More than many filmmakers, Istvan Szabo understands issues of fear and trust viscerally. He and his parents, both of them Jewish doctors, survived the Holocaust in Hungary because friends hid them.

Scene from Istvan Szabo’s “Mephisto.”
