Our new interview with award-winning Hungarian film director Ferenc Török is about his stunning film, “1945,” depicting a post-war village riddled by dark secrets after the deportations of the fascist era.

What is the missing link between the fascist and the communist dictatorship? How do people react to the same moral question in different ways? What do we see from the perspective of the victims and that of the conspirators or eyewitnesses? Why is it still important to establish the right kind of communication?
