On the occasion of the GULAG Memorial Year, the VERITAS Research Institute for History and Tabán Artmozi (Art Films) are together hosting a number of film nights related to the GULAG. The series’ next film is the second installment of Sándor Sára’s 1992 3-part Hungarian Women in the Gulag, which will be shown at 6 PM on Thursday, April 28th, 2016, at the Tabán Cinema. For his film Sára interviewed women who as young girls had endured difficult surroundings and constant denigration in the labor camps. The trilogy showcases uniquely female experiences. We will find out what happened to women who gave birth in the camps and what kinds of survival strategies they employed to get through the 12-hour workdays and the near-starving conditions.
The host of the evening will be historian Dávid Ligeti, Research Fellow at the VERITAS Institute. There is no entry fee. Tickets may be picked up at the Tabán box office (1016 Budapest, Krisztina krt. 87-89).
