Documentary Film DVD: Starting Over in America, the Story of the Hungarian 56ers

19.00

A 2002 independent documentary film by San Francisco filmmaker Sally Gati, Starting Over in America tells the inspiring stories of courageous Hungarians who left everything behind after participating in the 1956 uprising and made a new life in the USA.

The film is 57 minutes. Here’s the description from the filmmaker:

STARTING OVER IN AMERICA The Story of the Hungarian 56ers is a documentary about the Hungarian refugees who came to this country following their failed 1956 Revolution. Very personal stories make the historical events understandable and make concrete the ideas of Oppression, Communism, Revolution, Immigration, Assimilation, Freedom, and Democracy.

We hear men and women relate their experiences of living under the Communists and the Secret Police. We see footage of students and workers demonstrating against the repressive system and their subsequent futile fight against the Russian tanks. They tell how they escaped into Austria, crossed the Atlantic, struggled to adjust to American culture, and ultimately assimilated -- making this country their home.

200,000 refugees left Hungary; 40,000 came to the United States; and 15 help us imagine what it was like. These funny, sad, and uplifting immigrant stories have the power to reawaken in us what is possible in America.
