Tribeca Exclusive: A Man Faces His Past In Clip From Documentary 'Keep Quiet'

What if everything you once believed, that you thought was the truth and that guided your moral principles, turned out to be completely wrong? That’s the entry point for the documentary “Keep Quiet,” which premieres today at the Tribeca Film Festival.

Directed by Joseph Martin and Sam Blair, the film tells the story of Csanad Szegedi, vice president of Hungary’s far-right extremist party Jobbik, who fervently espoused antisemitic rhetoric and was a vocal supporter of the Holocaust denial movement. However, his life changed when he discovered his maternal grandparents were Jewish (his grandmother survived Auschwitz), which set him on a journey to learn about his faith. And as you’ll see in the clip below, it’s not an easy process for a man who spent so much time spewing hate.

“Keep Quiet” will have its first screening at the Tribeca Film Festival tonight at 6:15 at the Bow Tie Chelsea cinemas. Watch below.
