Hungary, 2017

Hungarian (with English subtitles)

91 minutes

A fresh, intelligent cinematic approach to a difficult topic that takes on a transitional time in Hungarian history with subtlety and nuance. – VARIETY

Hungary’s past is replete with unprocessed trauma.

Based on the acclaimed short story “Homecoming” by Gábor T. Szántó. Ferenc Török director, guides the audience back to 1945. Two Orthodox Jews’ arrival in a remote Hungarian village catalyzes an unwelcome reckoning with the recent past for the local inhabitants. In the presence of Soviet soldiers, the people of a little village are getting prepared for the wedding of the notary’s son, all the while trying to ignore the fact that they deported a significant part of the town’s Jewish community the previous year.
