György Pető Film Collection

Film Collection | Accession Number: 2019.432
Collection Summary
Thirty-three 8mm films by György Pető, a talented violin player, photographer, and class lottery businessman in the southern Hungarian city of Szeged. He began making 8mm films in 1938, including coverage of family life, leisure, and work, such as the lottery business and labor with the Jewish labor company 252/2 in Fall 1940. The films continue to document life after the Holocaust until 1965. Some of Pető's films formed the basis for the documentary film "Free Fall" by avant garde filmmaker Péter Forgács.
