Filmed over a Memorial Day Weekend in Buffalo, New York, Reunion is a heartfelt, touching and frequently funny portrait of the very first reunion of an extended Jewish family.

On the face of it no earth shattering events take place (eating, talking, bowling etc.) but at the same time everything 'happens'. In a wider context, the film is also about identity and what it means to be part of a family. It explores people's need to belong, to 'have a story, know the whole story' and understand how they 'fit into all this'. Ultimately, it's also about their need to leave something of themselves behind, and be remembered.

The film has been picked up for broadcast by More4 and Magyarosy is currently developing her first feature doc.
