Von Höfler vagyok (Werther variáció I.-II. - Privát Magyarország 15)

Directed by Péter Forgács
Hungary, 2008
Documentary

Synopsis

How does the process of film-making—like a huge carpet, of a 250 years saga of the Hungarian von Höfler family—render the chosen subject topical, re-liveable? And what is the topical signifier? is it merely a fleeting (a momentary) décollage — which is neither a piece of news, nor official history?
