“The film raises more troubling questions than it answers, but it’s fascinating throughout …” The Hollywood Reporter
Keep Quiet is the remarkable story of Hungarian politician Csanád Szegedi, who – as a vocal antisemite and Holocaust denier – came up through the ranks to become vice-President of Jobbik, Hungary’s far-right party. When he discovers that he is in fact Jewish and that his beloved grandmother survived Auschwitz, he goes on an astonishing journey that takes him from the dark depths of hatred to repentance, self-acceptance and reconciliation. But is his transformation truly sincere or merely an act of a man looking for a new self?
