About the film

The Hungarian government has a long history of discriminating against LGBTQ+ people. In the face of this situation, a group of human rights activists has organized an unprecedented campaign to protect their rights.

Under the pretext of protecting children, Prime Minister Viktor Orbán called a referendum in the summer of 2021 to support a law restricting sex education in schools and the presence of LGBTQ+ people in public spaces. But the real goal was to sow fear and further curtail human rights. A group of activists from Amnesty International Hungary and the Háttér Society decided to draw attention to the true nature of the referendum and convince their fellow citizens to boycott the vote by casting an invalid ballot. This medium-length film by director Polina Georgescu depicts the campaign in the final weeks before the vote. Whatever the outcome of this battle, Hungary remains a country that systematically denies vulnerable populations their rights.
