This documentary is the remarkable story of Csanad Szegedi. As the vice-president of Jobbik, Hungary’s far-right extremist party, Szegedi regularly espoused anti-Semitic rhetoric and Holocaust denials. He was a founder of the Hungarian Guard, a now-banned militia inspired by the Arrow Cross, a pro-Nazi party complicit in the murder of thousands of Jews during WWII. Then came a revelation which upended his life: Szegedi’s maternal grandparents were revealed to be Jewish and his beloved grandmother an Auschwitz survivor who had hidden her faith fearing further persecution. Keep Quiet depicts Szegedi’s three year journey as he is guided by Rabbi Boruch Oberlander to embrace his newfound religion, forcing him to confront the painful truths of his family’s past, his own wrong doing and the turbulent history of his country. But is this astonishing transformation a process of genuine reparation and spiritual awakening? Or is he simply a desperate man?
