The Museum of Modern Art

This event has ended.

Budapest-based avant-garde media artist and film director Péter Forgács (Hungarian, b. 1950), the recipient of the 2007 Erasmus Award for exceptional contribution to European culture, is widely acclaimed for his award-winning work using home movies. At this event, Forgács’s will discuss his most recent film, "Hunky Blues: The American Dream," which examines the fate of Hungarian men and women who arrived in the United States in the first half of the twentieth century. The film captures the difficult moments of arrival, integration, and assimilation, which eventually fed into the happiness of the later generations the fulfillment of the American dream.
