1990. aastal sündinud Ungari režissöör Hajni Kis õppis kõigepealt filosoofiat enne kui ta filmikunsti juurde liikus. Aastal 2013 võeti ta vastu Budapesti Teatri- ja Filmikunsti Ülikooli, kus õpib praegu filmirežiid. Esimesel kursusel tegi ta kaks lühidokumentaalfilmi: "Kaunitarid" ("Beauties") ja "Teine korrus" ("2nd Floor"). Tema teise kursuse projekt oli lühifilm "Kena figuur" ("Beautiful Figure"), mis kandideeris 2016. aastal üliõpilaste Oscaritele. Hiljuti lõpetas ta oma bakalaureuseõppe lõputöö filmi "Viimane kutse" ("Last Call", 2018). "Metsikud juured" ("Wild Roots") on tema esimene mängufilm.
