Temporary 8th

2012, 53 mins, colour, Italian film with Hungarian subtitles
D: ZimmerFrei


The film is part of a series of documentaries called “City Portrait / Temporary Cities”, filmed by ZimmerFrei in very limited areas or single spots within large cities that are in the course of a changing process. The film is dedicated to the 8th District of Budapest, a popular neighborhood where a major restructuring started in 2006 with displacements of inhabitants, demolitions and constructions but suddenly stopped in 2008 with the global economic crisis. The destroyed buildings are now empty spaces with no defined destination, a mosaic of fractures in the urban fabric. What to do with these public and private spaces of non-use? The film ventures into the desert lots, yards and homes to find out how the inhabitants transform the common areas and the face of their own city.
