Women in Film: Hédi Temessy

By Olivia Maria Hărşan

Special Birthday Post. Today is my birthday and I've decided to do a post on a wonderful actress from Hungary, Hédi Temessy (1925-2001).

I have developed a fascination for this actress since studying the films of Béla Tarr whom she worked with on his films, Almanac of Fall (1984) and Damnation (1987). There is something so mysterious about her gaze and her piercing crystal eyes. Hédi Temessy was an ethereal beauty with a fierce talent of acting.

In her younger years.
