"Guilt" directed by Márton Jelinkó 

Guilt is the second feature of Raindance’s Best International Debut Feature winner (with the film Indebted) Marton Jelinko, from 2012. It is a story of a man infiltrating a human trafficking ring, in obsessive search for his sister, who has fallen victim of trafficking. It is a film about obsession and mental breakdown when one’s morality fails enough. A film more of a cinematic experience, telling it’s story through the audiovisual interpretation of emotions than a narrative story. It was made on a micro budget, but you wouldn’t believe it by looking at the visual style of it.
