2158 Stories is an ode to cinema inspired by the discovery of a notebook, in which a Hungarian worker documented the 2158 cinema trips he made over the course of his life. Behind the orderly notebook, the director discovers a split family with a shared passion for cinema. We follow four of the notebook owner’s descendants living in contemporary Hungary and discover how they carry on the film legacy. The multiplot story is weaved together by the young filmmaker’s reflections about cinema and memory. How come the films that we remember are the ones that make us forget about ourselves?
