Judgment in Hungary

by Eszter Hajdú New World View Hungary

Between 2008 and 2009, a group of right wing extremists carried out a number of calculated attacks on Hungary’s Romany community, in which several people lost their lives. Years later, the case comes to court. After a string of unprecedented blunders by police investigators and the suspicion that the secret service was involved in the racially motivated murders, the court itself was under immense pressure. Recording the entire 167 days of the trial, filmmaker Eszter Hajdú has pieced together a gripping yet equally shocking courtroom drama. JUDGMENT IN HUNGARY not only reveals the emotions of all those involved – perpetrators, victims, judge and witnesses – but also serves as a precise protocol of the incomprehensible and offers an in-depth insight into the rifts in Hungarian society.
