We Don't Exist

A record number of poor people queued up on Christmas day to get free food in the center of Budapest.
Meanwhile, the extra populist government has redefined the statistical categories in order to be able to communicate that there is almost no poverty left in Hungary.

The semi-documentaristic short film inspired by Béla Tarr the almost one-shot steadycam visual showing the faces of these poor people is contrasted to sound bites of Hungarian politicians, who are claiming - in fact, falsely - that there are less poor people in the country.
