History History History by Deborah Pearson (GB/CA)

EVENT INFORMATION

Flere hundre tusen mennesker flyktet fra Ungarn i 1956 da Russerne slo ned revolusjonen, deriblant Deborah Pearsons bestefar. Han hadde hovedrollen i politisk ladet spillefilm. Filmen restaureres nå, og Deborah Pearson har fått tilgang til alt materialet. Hun vil sette seg selv inn mellom oss og filmen, og selv ta grep om fortiden. Prosjektet handler om hvordan vi videreformidler fortiden og hvem som får fortelle historien videre.

October 23rd, 1956, a revolution started in Hungary. It lasted twelve days. Hungarians fought Soviet troops on the streets, from their homes, and from the Corvin Cinema, the Revolutionary Headquarters. On November 4th, 1956, the Russian army brought tanks into Budapest and stopped the revolution, force ably occupying the country until the Berlin Wall fell in 1989. The first thing they destroyed was the cinema. Deborah Pearson loosely “translates” the Hungarian film that was meant to be premiered at the Corvin cinema that day, looking for traces of freedom and failure.
