Dir. Sam Blair & Joseph Martin (Hungary, 2016, 97 min.)
Csanad Szegedi, a man with anti-Semitic beliefs and a Holocaust denier, rose up through the ranks to lead Hungary’s far right conservative Jobbik Party. At the peak of his political career, Szegedi discovered that his family kept a dark secret for decades—his maternal grandparents were Jewish, his grandmother an Auschwitz survivor. Keep Quiet depicts Szegedi’s three year journey as he is guided by Rabbi Oberlander to embrace his newfound religion, and as he confronts the painful truths of his family’s past, his own wrongdoing, and the turbulent history of his country. But is this astonishing transformation a process of genuine reparation and spiritual awakening? Or is he simply a desperate man who, having failed to suppress the truth, has nowhere else to turn?
