Father and His Three Sons - The Bartos Family (Private Hungary 1)

1988, 60 min, color, sound

Zoltan Bartos, an amateur filmmaker and composer of popular dance music, made films between the end of the 1920s and the middle of the 1950s. This one-hour film, taken from the nearly five-hour film diary, follows the life and history of the Bartos family. The small rituals and events in the family provide a view of the bridging of an age and a culture, the history of the lifetime of a generation. Reviving a world of the past creates a mirror that reflects the face of private and official history.
