Selected Filmography

And It Was The Same With My Son - short documentary / 9 / Miraj Films (2018)

The Happiest Barrack – short documentary 15 minutes (2016)

“The Happiest Barrack” is Noémi Varga’s final project at the Royal College of Art in London. The film observes the effect of the socialist era of the country’s history on the individual through the retelling of her maternal grandmother’s life. This creative documentary, which is a 15-minute long single take through the everydays of one of the so called “kommunalka’s (shared apartments) shows the dramatic impact and the structure of Kádár’s Hungary.
