Red, White, Green

The Hungarian Revolution of 1848 which later grew into a war for independece from the Austrian Empire started on March 15. On this day a mass demonstration was held in front of the National Museum and revolutionaries like famous poet Sándor Petőfi marched through Pest.

Nowdays March 15 is one of the biggest national holidays. In elementary school and later in high school children always recreate the historical events in a performance. As a child I was always wondering why I don’t have any particular feelings about this event, so I started my research what really happened on this day in 1848. The series was shot only on March 15 in 2017, recreating the events and playing with collective memories and my own.
