Eltörölni Frankot

Erasing Frank

In the 1980s Budapest singer Frank is struggling with Hungary’s totalitarian regime. The police come down hard on his illegal punk band and Frank is sent to a mental hospital to convert his political ideologies. Inspired by real punk bands in communistic Hungary during the 80s and shot in gorgeous black and white with methods that remind us of documentaries shot in that era. The film is a portrayal of oppression and how much one is willing to lose in the fight. Feature film debuting director Gábor Fabricius paints an important picture of our recent history.
