The Legacy of Menla won the Best Documentary award at Brasov International Film Festival last year in September.
We just received this beautiful looking trophy a few weeks ago so we went to our partner company FocusFox Studio to take a group picture. These wonderful people on the picture played a mayor part in our lives in the last three-four years since we were introduced to them thanks to Andras Toth and Denes Szekeres from Tivoli Films.”
