This special event is dedicated to the topic of citizenship with the projection of the movie The Citizen (Az állampolgár).
Wilson, an African man in his late fifties, has been living as a refugee in Hungary for years. He works as a security guard in Budapest and his main desire is to acquire Hungarian citizenship, but he keeps failing the exams that are required for his application. The movie cuts across topics such as migration, citizenship, and race, all increasingly salient in the globalised world.
The EUI community had the chance to discuss the movie with the filmmaker Roland Vranik and Arghavan Shekari, the lead actress, who were present at the screening. The discussion have been followed by an aperitivo.
