A key figure in the development of Hungarian New Cinema, director, screenwriter, and actor Zoltán Fábri's best-known films are Korhinta/Merry Go-Round (1955) and Hannibáll Tanár Úr/Professor Hannibal (1956). Born in Budapest, Fábri started out as a set designer for the Academy of Fine Arts and then worked for the Academy of Dramatic and Film Art. He then began directing plays. Fábri spent most of World War II as a POW. After the war, Fábri began his film career in the early '50s as an art director. He made his directorial debut in 1952 with Vihar/The Storm. Though Fábri continued making films through the '60s, they were not as successful as his earlier work. He became a teacher at Budapest's Academy of Theater and Film Art and spent many years presiding over the Association of Hungarian Film and Television Arts. After 1981, Fábri served as the association's honorary president. Fábri has won numerous awards, including a Golden Bear from the 1977 Berlin Film Festival for Az Otodik Pecset/The Fifth Seal and a Silver Bear from the 1981 Berlin Festival for Requiem.
