In 2008 and 2009, a group of Hungarian right-wing extremists committed a series of attacks on random members of the Roma community. Six people were killed and another five were injured. The trial of the four suspects lasted two-and-a-half years. The 167 days of interrogations were documented by Eszter Hajdú as the only filmmaker in the courtroom. Will the Hungarian state protect the Roma? Can they trust in the Hungarian justice system? Eszter Hajdú not only filmed the trial but created a memorial to the victims.

Eszter HAJDÚ

Documentary Filmmaker, Budapest

 Eszter Hajdú is a film director, sociologist and journalist based in Budapest and Lisbon. Prior to her career as a film director she has worked as a reporter, editor and programme director in print, radio and television. Her first documentary film "My Own Private, Tarnabod" (2006) depicts homeless families who were given a chance to start over in the village of Tarnabod, 120km away from Budapest. This film won awards at Hungarian and international film festivals in 2006. Her award winning film "The Fidesz Jew, the mother with no sense of nation and mediation" (2008) was the most provocative and most viewed documentary film in Hungary in 2008. The film depicts society in Hungary after the 1989 change of regime, in which a polarized political atmosphere has caused major splits between friends and even within families. The antagonising parties turn to mediation techniques to try to achieve reconciliation. The premiere of her film "Judgment in Hungary" (2013) took place at the 26th DFA (International Documentary Film Festival Amsterdam). The film was nominated at the 26th IDFA (International Documentary Film Festival Amsterdam) in the First Appearance Competition. It won 17 international awards and was screened in 40 countries.
