Description: In 1956, tiny Hungary, a nation of 10 million, throws off the tyranny of the giant Soviet Union, a nation of 200 million, for just 13 days, but this event catalyzes the eventual fall of communism around the world. This fascinating documentary includes such interviewees as Dr. Henry Kissinger, as an active participant in the Cold War, and Otto von Habsburg, heir to the Austro-Hungarian empire and now a European Parliament member, and many notable politicians and personalities.
This was Laszlo Kovacs' (Easy Rider; Paper Moon; What's Up, Doc?; New York, New York; My Best Friend's Wedding) last film. It includes current and 1956 archive footage by both Laszlo Kovacs and by another of Hollywood's best cinematographers, Oscar winner Vilmos Zsigmond, ASC (Close Encounters of the Third Kind; Deer Hunter; The Witches of Eastwick; The Black Dahlia). They both also acted as Executive Producers on the project.
