Sunset (Napszallta) is the story of a young girl who grows up to become a strong and fearless woman in Budapest before World War I.

Irisz Leiter arrives in the Hungarian capital with high hopes to work as a milliner at the legendary hat store that belonged to her late parents. When she is sent away by the store's new owner, she is abruptly approached by a man who is looking for a certain Kálmán Leiter. The young woman follows Kálmán's tracks, her only link to a lost past, on a quest that brings her through Budapest and into the turmoil of a civilization on the eve of its downfall.

Sunset premiered at the Venice Film Festival 2018, where it won the FIPRESCI Prize.

The release of this film is supported through Creative Europe's Distribution: Selective scheme. Hungarian production company Laokoon Cinema also received Single Project funding in 2016 for the development of this film.

Louisa Dent, Managing Director of Curzon Artificial Eye, said:

"Creative Europe support makes a significant contribution to Curzon's ability to champion European film. It not only helps us take acquisition risks and mount ambitious releases of non-national European films, but also encourages collaboration with European partners such as sales agents and filmmakers."

Curzon has also received funding from Creative Europe to support the release of European films in the UK through the Automatic Distribution scheme.
