The director of the critically acclaimed WHITE GOD employs his uniquely talented eye to create this riveting Palme d’Or nominated supernatural thriller. JUPITER’S MOON is a true spectacle that rivals any Hollywood production to tell a timely European story. Aryan, a young Syrian refugee, (Zsombor Jéger)is shot while illegally trying to cross the Hungarian border. While treating his wounds, a doctor (Merab Ninidze) at the refugee camp discovers that Aryan has gained an extraordinary talent – he can levitate at will. The corrupt doctor sees an opportunity and offers to smuggle Aryan out of the camp if, in return, he helps him make some money by using his new miraculous gift. With JUPITER’S MOON, Mundruczó marks himself as one his generation’s most visionary directors by tackling eternally mythic themes and contemporary political issues with visually mind-bending aplomb.
