Films from OSA's Collections: Paupers by the Fekete Doboz Foundation

Films from OSA's Collections: Paupers by the Fekete Doboz Foundation

Many of Blinken OSA's documents, photos, films deal with poverty and with socially excluded groups. This time we chose to share a film about homeless people because this poroblem is still as painfully around as it was in the 1990s when the film was made by the Fekete Doboz Alapítvány (Black Box Foundation). 

 

Fekete Doboz Alapítvány (Black Box Foundation), was established in 1988, as the first independent media group in Communist Hungary. Since then, Black Box has both participated in and documented Hungarian politics and cultural events in a way fundamentally different from the state–controlled media’s. Black Box gave voice and a face to those deprived of media visibility: those who dared to print samizdat, those who commemorated the 1956 Revolution, those who organized protests against the communist dictatorship, and those who demanded social and political change and advocated for national sovereignty before the regime change.
