This is the 7th full-length film offered up by the Hungarian director whose body of work includes the multi-award-winning work from 2004 Dealer, the experimental flick Milky Way (which triumphed in Locarno’s Filmmakers of the Present line-up in 2007) and the English language movie Womb [+see also:

(in competition in Locarno in 2010).

Kept under close wraps for the time being, the story unfolding within Forest - I See You Everywhere (which was written by Bence Fliegauf himself) takes place "within the feverish labyrinth of everyday life and relationships, featuring characters who are trying to get to the bottom of what is arguably the biggest secret of their lives: the other."

Standing tall among the cast are Eliza Sodró (crowned Best Actress during Hungarian Film Week 2020 thanks to Captives [+see also:
