Screening of Parador Hungaro

Parador Hungaro (documentary, directed by Patrick Alexander and AsenethSuárez Ruiz, 79 min, in Spanish, English and Hungarian with English subtitles, Colombia-Hungary 2014) is the touching story of a friendship spanning generations and national boundaries: a Hungarian soldier escapes to the West in the 1950s. The son of a U.S. soldier runs to the East in the 1990s. When their paths cross in Bogotá, Colombia, they become friends by sharing memories of the same land but of very different times, and old feelings get stirred up, for better or for worse. Parador Húngaro is a reflection on immigrant identity: what we leave behind, what we learn anew, and what it's like to go back 'home' again. 

Discussion to be followed with the participation of Patrick Alexander director and Petra Andits anthropologist, moderated by Lilla Foldy-Molnar
