Kint, de l'autre côté

A Film by Olga Baillif

- Producer -

In 1965, a few weeks after the crushing og the popular uprising by the Soviets, my mother left Hungary with her parents to go to Switzerland. My mother never taught us her native tongue and never spoke much about her life before her exile. It is as if the past had silenced itself within her. With this film, I'm attempting to undertake a two pronged journey through the words of my family and through the present day Hungary. I gather the little things that catch my eyes and which resound with memories. What happens when one leaves the place of one's origin ? What survives through this rupture and what changes ?
