The Hungarian revolution broke out in 1956, and that same year, my paternal grandfather illegally fled the country never to return. One year later he arrived in Canada as an asylum seeker, leaving behind my 4 year old father and my grandmother in Budapest. When I ask my father about these events, he avoids my questioning.

FOLK is a personal investigation into the impact of my father's self-imposed amnesia and intergenerational trauma, stemming from a desire for veracity and healing.
