– The events after the death of Zsolt Erőss are presented primarily from the perspective of his wife by Sándor Csoma’s working film Depths and Heights, – Zsolt Trill, who played the climber, told our magazine. The Mari Prize-winning actor Jászai also revealed what Zsolt Erőss teaches us.
The work entitled Heights and Depths deals with events that have taken place: surely many people remember it when the climber Zsolt Erőss disappeared and his wife, Hilda Sterczer, was the focus. The film presents the drama of the widow left alone with the two young children, the process of mourning processing, and the couple’s special relationship in the form of memoirs.
“The focus of the work is actually on people close to the climber – his wife, parents and companions. Zsolt Erőss appears only in the form of recollections – pointed out Zsolt Trill, the actor of the National Theater, from whom we also learned that when he worked with Sándor Csoma during a previous filming,
the director remarked how much he resembled a climber.
“But I think the female character is much more important, much more interested in the director, as we don’t care much about him,” the actor stressed. Work on the film about Hild Sterczer began in late April. The female protagonist of the work, created with the support of the Incubator program of the National Film Institute, is Pál Emőke from Transylvania.
Regarding the preparation for the role, Zsolt Trill said that although he did not know Zsolt Erőss personally, he read a lot about him, he kept following the news about him. He also talked to the director and met Erőss’s wife.
The actor believes that the Transylvanian-born Zsolt Erőss has accomplished things that will enrich us all across the border here and beyond, as we belong to a common Hungarian.
– Zsolt Erőss teaches us endless perseverance and determination, because despite the difficult financial and other circumstances, he started to reach the tops. We, ordinary people, have no idea what it means to carry out a dream that is physically and mentally stressful, said Zsolt Trill.
Sára Soma, winner of the title of the best short film of the year, was awarded the title of the best short film of the year by the Hungarian Film Critics and the Hungarian Film Academy. National Film Institute He makes his first film in his incubator program. To portray the world of mountaineers as authentically as possible, the director who also recorded the script also gathered his own experience in preparation as he climbed Mount Everest base camp, 5,300 feet high in Nepal. Although the plot takes place among climbers and we can count on some really spectacular scenes shot in the Austrian Alps, Heights and Depths is not a sports film, but rather a drama about emotional processes, which is about mourning processing as well as the negative effects of media pressure.
Filming began in Szentendre, followed by some outdoor scenes shot by cameraman Levente Tóth in the enchanting Dömörkapu forest. Although the work was hampered by hail on the first day, everything went well in the jump. Zsolt Trill also revealed that in the coming weeks the staff will be shooting at Ferihegy Airport and several locations in Budapest, and then they will continue working in Austria in the autumn. “We’ll be shooting at an altitude of 3,000 meters for a few days, and I’m pushing for the female members of the crew to endure the ordeals involved,” the actor said.
Director Sándor Csoma put it in a statement sent to our magazine: it is a great honor for him to be able to deal with such an important and sensitive topic, which has relatively little elaboration in Hungarian film history. As he said, the authentic presentation of mourning processing is a complex and high-precision task, but fortunately the crew was recruited from talented and enthusiastic people and found wonderful co-creators in the actors, which greatly facilitates and deepens the work.
Heights and Depths is produced by Juno11 Pictures, co-produced by Sparks Camera & Lighting, produced by Claudia Sümeghy and Tamás Yvan Topolánszky.
