Trailer for the documentary Corvin Variations.

The so-called Corvin Project initiated in 2003 was the largest and most awarded Central European city development project. It envisioned the full transformation of cca. 22 acres in Budapest's 8th district, which implied the demolition of all buildings in that area. Both the local government and the investor wanted to get rid of the "slums" by relocating more than one thousand families - among them many Roma people - who could not afford buying property in the old-new area. The protagonists of Corvin Variations are all local residents who have been relocated in the course of the project - and who recall, with nostalgia and criticism, the life in the old neighbourhood and community. They no longer see each other - they meet only in the reconstructed space created by the filmmakers...
