Former Hungarian opposition politician Nóra and musician Virág met in 2011 at an anti-government demonstration, but they have long lost faith that their country’s politicians will improve the situation of the LGBTQ community. They both know only too well that adoption is an issue for the long term in Hungary, which does not permit same-sex marriages. Although they have the support of their families and friends, the authorities put barrier after barrier in their way. Even when they finally achieve their goal, they haven’t won. What future awaits them in this country? And what price must they pay to be able to live life to the fullest?
You can find the film trailer and information on how you can support LGBT+ people in Hungary on the One World festival website.
The event venue is Karlín Barracks, with the screening in the courtyard at Filmplace. The film is in Hungarian with Czech and English subtitles.
The charity Člověk v tísni (People in Need) has been organising the One World: International Human Rights Documentary Film Festival since 1999. Over the years, it has become one of the world’s most important festivals of this type. More than one hundred documentaries about human rights issues are shown at One World every year, in Prague and many other Czech cities. The festival is also the force behind two year-round programmes: You Screen It! – an alternative community distribution – and the new online film platform, jedensvetonline.cz.
Each year, Mezipatra Queer Film Festival presents around one hundred Czech and foreign films about LGBTQ+ subjects, along with their creators. The films are judged both by the viewers and a professional jury as part of the prestigious international competition for international films, and the accompanying discussions, lectures, workshops, exhibitions and parties are an essential part of the programme. The festival mainly runs in Prague and Brno in November, with some screenings in selected Czech towns.
