The author will speak about her research and the resulting book set in the early 1950s in Hungary, a turbulent repressive time in Hungarian history. After a lost war and a brutal transition to communism, the people lived under constant threat of blacklisting, property confiscation, arrest, imprisonment, and worse. In this milieu of dread, music offered hope and redemption.

Presenting the internationally acclaimed BuSHO (Budapest Short) FILM FESTIVAL winners at the Cleveland Hungarian Congress. Hosting the event will be Tamas Gabeli, festival director, offering a chance for audience members to discuss the film choices. BuSHO supports a generation of developing young filmmakers from Central-Eastern-Europe. The films shown vary in length from a one minute to 30 minutes. Conveying a story or theme in such a limited time is a serious art form. A noon reception on November 23, at the Hilton Gdn Inn, will give you a chance to meet and greet Tamas Gabeli.
Programs at the Hungarian Congress are given primarily in Hungarian, but there are also English language presentations, specifically: HU Art Deco -a Unique Language Form, Current Challenges and Opportunities in HU-American relations, A Century of Conflict: Communism vs. Civilization, HU-US Energy Relations (tickets required). The BuSHO film festival presentations are bilingual, as well as the Hungarian Magyar Ball (tickets required).
