The Hungarian Village Film in a Capitalist Milieu: Reality Confronts Ideology

The village film has a long and celebrated legacy within Hungarian cinema and has been utilised as a progressive vehicle for exploring and representing contemporary societal issues. For my thesis I propose to examine the post-communist Hungarian village film as a means of analysing the realities of Hungary’s transition to democracy and challenging the idealised versions that are portrayed in mainstream Hungarian cinema.
