Biography

Singer/celebrity Eszter Balint initial emerged as an associate from the avant-garde Squat Movie theater troupe prior to making a memorable cinematic debut in 1984 in movie director Jim Jarmusch’s seminal indie film Stranger Than Heaven. Following that she appeared to drop out of view for the rest of the 10 years, not really reappearing on-screen until 1990’s little-seen Bail Jumper. Little roles within the Linguini Incident and Trees and shrubs Lounge implemented as Balint rather focused increasingly more of her energies on music, and in 1999 she released her full-length debut Flicker.
