Made in Hungária

Hungary, 2009., 109’


Gergely Fonyó


Tamás Szabó Kimmel, Tünde Kiss, Iván Fenyö




Miklós Fenyö's parents returned to Communist Hungary in the mid sixties - when everyone else was fleeing to the West. For young Miki, arriving from America sporting a Hawaiian shirt and a rebellious streak, life under dictatorship was going to be tough. Miki's old friends don't know what to make of his outrageous clothes, flawless American accent and collection of original Buddy Holly 45s. His childhood sweetheart is cold and distant while local tough guy Röné is unmoved by the challenger to his rock 'n' roll crown. But that's not all. When the authorities see the effect Miki's gyrating hips and lewd music have on teenage girls, they won't stand for it. His father's job is on the line, and, for the first time, Miki must play by the rules. He has no choice but to enter the local talent show - and the rest is rock 'n' roll history.

Gergely Fonyó worked as camerman in several Hungarian and international productions. At age 26 he moves to LA to work as camerman in video clips and commercials. His movie “Johnny Famous” brought him 1st prize at 31st Hungarian Film Week and other prizes. His teenage comedy “Finally, Summer is Here!” had won the first prize of the Camera Hungaria Festival.
