Róbert Tasnádi – Crossroads of the Iron Curtain, 2013.

Robert Tasnádi komunikolog i novinar koji živi i radi u Szombathelyju (Mađarska). U filmu Raskrižje željezne zavjese predstavlja mali privatni muzej Željezne zavjese u selu Felsőcsatár. Muzej je osnovao Sándor Goják, koji je šezdesetih radio u graničnoj policiji, a kasnije je skupljao predmete koji su dokumentirali (ilegalne) prelaske austrijsko-mađarske granice koja je postojala od 1948. do 1989. godine. Muzej je zbirka predmeta i priča koji podsjećaju na Željeznu zavjesu, kao ideološku i fizičku granicu između komunističkih područja i zapada za vrijeme Hladnog rata.

The Hungarian-Austrian border from 1948 to 1989 was marked by fences and landmines. Number of ordinary people, even celebrities seeking better life, adventure passed the strictly guarded border. Some of them by themselves, others assisted by smugglers, locals. Eventually, some of them were captured and seized. The video material gives an insight of the era when small villages, relatives were separated from each other by fences. The former Hungarian border patrol Sándor Goják devoted his life to display and demonstrate how the Iron Curtain worked for four decades. He shares those stories which were kept in secret for long time and what are almost forgotten by now…
