Rocking the Nation
A concert tour with the rock band “Romantic Violence” and its fans to get insight into the Hungarian radical right-wing youth subculture. Folk musicians and skinheads, football supporters and college students speak of their radical nationalistic views. The slogans are rocking: freedom, anti-Communism, Trianon, the Jews, 100% Hungarian, to arms!
But what happens when words turn to action?
