The Happiest Barrack

A legvidámabb barakk

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. Beyond this particular project, the director is currently exploring the boundaries of conventional documentary filmmaking, applying the tools of cinematic storytelling to all her subjects.
