NAPLÓ APÁMNAK, ANYÁMNAKDIARY FOR MY FATHER AND MOTHER

In October 1956, a popular uprising against Soviet repression is taking shape in Budapest – Stalin’s statue is beheaded and for a brief moment a new future seems possible. Juli returns to the city from Moscow, where she learned of her father’s rehabilitation, but also of his death. Possessed by anger and grief, she re-encounters her surroundings. Photographs and film recordings seem like a form of reassurance, grim means to aid in grasping the extent of the catastrophe playing out around her; as if to bear witness in the impotent paralysis – to show things they way they were. The third instalment of the Diary Trilogy also moves deftly between history, fiction and autobiography in the pursuit of truth, demonstrating the possibility of a perspectivistic approach to recording history.
