Jegyzokönyv, Mansfeld réter emlére (Court Record, In Memoriam Péter Mansfeld) [Premiere]

Zoltan Szilágyi Varga, Hungary, 2006, 7’, OVS. English

Péter Mansfeld, leader of a group of hotheaded youngsters, was executed in reprisal for the counterattacks that followed the suppression of the Hungarian revolution of 1956. This short film gives Mansfeld a second opportunity, recreating the story in animation from a real recording of the reading of the judicial record. The monotony of the voice of the judge contrasts with the chilling content.
