Free to ROCK - Széchenyi István University, Győr

Wednesday, 25 September, University Aula, 17.00

To commemorate the 30th anniversary of the change of regime from Socialism to Democracy we are inviting all international students to a movie screening in the University Aula organized by the Embassy of the United States and Széchenyi István University. Through documentary interviews with rock stars and politicians, the documentary shows the path of history in the Soviet Union until the fall of communism, and the role that American and other musicians played in this process through rock music. The film was directed by Jim Brown, a 4-time Emmy winner, with Kiefer Sutherland as narrator. Real players include presidents, diplomats, spies, rock stars from Western Europe to the Soviet Union, who tell us how Rock & Roll played a role in ending the Cold War.

After the film screening, everyone is invited to a discussion with renowned experts about the Western cultural influences of Hungarian society in the Kádár era. Guests include Ms Lauren Perlaza, Cultural Attaché, Embassy of the United States of America, who will open the event, Dr Bence Csatári,  historian, journalist, and scientific researcher at the Office of the National Memory Committee, Mr Béla Szilárd Jávorszky, music writer, editor, author, Mr László Zselencz, prominent rock musician, Mr József Bana,  Director of the Győr Archives.

Admission to the event is free. We look forward to welcoming everyone!
