Made in Hungária

Fund-raising movie projection

Made in Hungária is a film full of humor, a satire of the communist era in an East European country.

Miklós Fenyő's parents returned to Communist Hungary in the mid sixties , when everyone else was fleeing to the West. For young Miki, arriving from America sporting a Hawaiian shirt, a perfect quiff and a rebellious streak, life under dictatorship was going to be tough.

Miki's old friends don't know what to make of his outrageous clothes, flawless American accent and collection of original Buddy Holly 45s. His childhood sweetheart is cold and distant while local tough guy Röné is unmoved by the challenger to his rock 'n' roll crown.

But that's not all. When the authorities see the effect Miki's gyrating hips and lewd music have on teenage girls, they won't stand for it. His father's job is on the line, and, for the first time, Miki must play by the rules. He has no choice but to enter the local talent show - and the rest is rock 'n' roll history.

Organized by the Hungarian stand at the international Bazaar of Luxembourg in collaboration with the CCRN under the auspices of the Hungarian Embassy in Brussels.
