"If you came into the world again, which one would you not like to be: A merciless king or an honest slave in pain?" Adapted from Ferenc Santa's novel with the same title, "Fifth Seal" examines "How bad do you need to be to live?" and can be viewed on Feb. 20 at Akbank Sanat.

The debut movie of the award-winning director Fabri, "Hungarians," about a group of Hungarian workers who have immigrated to Germany in the outbreak of World War II, will be screened on Feb 27.
