What defines one’s nationality in the age of liquid modernity and fluid identity? In addition to the traditional Hungarian Panorama at Verzio which introduces films produced and - by and large - filmed in Hungary, this thematic block presents four documentaries which explore the life of Hungarians across the globe – from Slovakia to Spain, Israel, Bolivia, and Colombia. Each documentary addresses the dilemmas of identification– be it by wandering the world or by looking into a family history which proves to be more complex than any official national narrative. Can examining the “identity ingredients” – language, food, or family memories – help to understand how to feel Hungarian? The protagonists of the films have different answers, but all of them confirm that a personal identity quest never follows a prescribed path.
All films are screened in original language with English subtitles except Felvidék.
