My America (2011)
52 min / 87 min
Co-producer / Director / Writer
Filmmaker Peter Hegedus grew up in socialist Hungary and overdosed on American movies and the values he thought they promoted: truth, justice, and hope for a safer world. But twenty years later, he wonders whether the America of his dreams ever existed. From the streets of Tehran to Tiananmen Square and from the refugee camps of Africa to the White House, My America follows Peter on a six-year quest to find out what happened to the America of his childhood.
"Aussie documaker Peter Hegedus literally puts himself on the psychiatrist's couch in "My America," a stimulating chronicle of his search for the America he loved while growing up in socialist Hungary and suburban Brisbane."
