Caught in BetweenVladislava Plančíková - 75'
"Felvidek" is a multiethnic Slovak/Hungarian region in southern Slovakia. Far too often the region has been trapped in between the opposing interests of political elites, far too often its people have been tossed around by the twists of history. In the 1940s, many of them were forced to leave their homeland. Felvidek: Caught in Between unravels the history which continues to be a soft spot for people whose fates were hit by the events after World War II. Some wounds are hard to heal, some questions remain unanswered but the future brings hope for reconciliation. When memories are not enough, the stories come to live through animation. The film combines oral history documentary, archive footage and animation. The narrative deals with a sensitive theme: the forced resettlement of ethnic Hungarians in postwar Czechoslovakia.
