Hungary 2016 105 mins. In Hungarian

In this exuberant coming-of-age crime comedy, two aspiring comic book artists with disabilities become embroiled in the schemes of an enigmatic wheelchairusing hitman named Rupaszov. Recruiting the pair as his accomplices, Rupaszov initiates them into the fast-paced world of gangsters, guns, and Serbian crime lords. The action-packed journey leads to a more tender tale in which the lines between reality and fantasy defy expectation at every turn. With stellar cinematography, a mix of live action and animation, and a dark sense of humor, Till’s debut Kills on Wheels mashes genres as it rolls crazily along. This year’s Hungarian submission for the Best Foreign Language Film Oscar. Hungarian Oscar submission.

The Northwest Film Center recognizes and honors the Indigenous peoples of this region on whose ancestral lands the museum now stands. These include the Willamette Tumwater, Clackamas, Kathlemet, Molalla, Multnomah and Watlala Chinook Peoples and the Tualatin Kalapuya who today are part of the Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde, and many other Native communities who made their homes along the Columbia River. We also want to recognize that Portland today is a community of many diverse Native peoples who continue to live and work here. We respectfully acknowledge and honor all Indigenous communities—past, present, future—and are grateful for their ongoing and vibrant presence.
