Hungarian communist era leader Janos Kadar is the subject of a documentary by Peter Muszatics, now finishing post-production.
Eszter Buslig, who is working closely with Muszatics on the production, spoke with FNE about the film, which is aimed for the 20th anniversary of Kadar's death, just one year after he resigned as the party's General Secretary. The film is produced by HCC Media Group (www.hccmedia.hu) with lead producer Jozsef Cirko. The documentary is funded by the production company, and made without state support.
Muszatics' directing credits include three previous documentaries for HCC Media Group.
The nearly one-year shooting schedule started last May. The film includes both new interviews and archive footage.
The sale of TV rights is under negotiation.
