In the wake of sweeping “reforms” and crack-downs brought on by the last election in Hungary, the country’s artists, journalists, and intellectuals are facing a period of intense scrutiny and censorship. Contemporary political philosopher G.M Tamas, theater and film director Kornél Mundruczó, and playwright/actor/director Béla Pintér (via Skype) will discuss the current situation for the Hungarian creative community.
