The American dream

The Hungarian immigrant experience is revealed and revered in this special documentary by director Peter Forgacs. The filmmaker weaves photographs, home-movie footage, and interviews into an epic saga of escape and emigration, integration and assimilation as he chronicles the wave of Hungarian immigrants who arrived in America between 1890 and 1921. From the rural countryside of Eastern Europe to Ellis Island, Hunky Blues follows the struggles of ordinary Hungarians as they travel the well-trodden path to the American Dream. "For Forgacs, this scratchy black and white medium is embedded with treasures - complex private and public stories and a past that's forbidden or forgotten" (Art in America).
