Fly Bird, Fly

The story of the Hungarian folk revival, which started in the 1970s, and its continuing legacy today. It was the only grassroots musical movement in the Eastern Bloc. Why did it happen, and how did rural peasant music become a significant movement in the city and had an effect on the regime change?

Filmed in Budapest, Warsaw and Transylvanian villages with eye-catching archive and new dance scene recordings.

Duration: 50′ or 60′

Directed by Simon Broughton
