Béla Pintér and Company

Our Secrets / Titkaink


ca. 115 min (without respite)

Back to the Budapest of the ‘80s. The story takes place in one of those dance halls where Hungary’s rural folklore was being rediscovered and celebrated. In defiance of all contemporary reminiscing, Béla Pintér’s play does not cast any nostalgic look back but talks about how “our secrets” have come into the political reality of out time. It’s about former informants that became leaders; about villains and evildoers who managed to survive every political shift.
