Journey Home: A Story From The Hungarian Revolution of 1956
(Hazatérés: egy szabadságharcos története)
documentary, video, 88 minutes
PREMIER (HUNGARY): 2006.
Maybe it never happened.
Taking place in Budapest a halfcentury after the fateful events that took nearly 3,000 lives and forced 200,000 Hungarians to emigrate, Journey Home documents László Pigniczky’s daughters as they take a personal – sometimes disturbing, sometimes humorous – trek into the history of 1956. Armed only with their deceased father’s vague anecdotes and their own curiosity about the past, they piece together the puzzle of their father’s role in Hungary’s seemingly futile battle against the Soviet Union. They find out far more than they hoped for, although the story takes a number of unexpected turns along the way. By the end of the film, László Pigniczky's journey home has become their own journey to understand their father and the events that shaped both his life and their own upbringing.www.56films.com
