Yad Hanna – The Collective Man

Directing: Gergő SomogyváriGergely László


András Lichter and his comrades founded the last communist kibbutz on a carrot field along the former Jordanian border in 1950. The founders, who were of Hungarian origin, were loyal to the Soviet Union and the Red Army. The kibbutz members shared property, raised their children together, and ate together. However, the idea of the collective disintegrated and finally failed after several decades due to both internal and external conflict. In 2004 privatisation started, the former members were given private property. By tracing the former community the film searches for the reasons, the processes behind and the consequences of the kibbutz's failure, and shows how the idea of collectivism turned into present day consumerism.
