With: Kata Csató, György Dalos, László Földényi, Kornél Mundruczó & Anna Faur
Film premiere: FreeSZFE
Three generations discussed the current political situation in Hungary in the second episode of “Break-Up”, the new series of Berliner Korrespondenzen. Kicking off with a speech by the essayist László Földényi, the event featured the premiere of a documentary short film on the protest movement FreeSZFE. It recounts last year’s blockade of the University of Theater and Film in Budapest by students. In the ensuing debate (moderator: Anna Faur), historian György Dalos, director Kornél Mundruzcó and Kata Csató, president of FreeSZFE, put the students’ protest into historical and political context. How does it relate to past movements, what does it tell us about the state of freedom of expression in Hungary and what effects could ithave on next year’s elections?
