The Pastor of Mandák House

  • Hungary
Audio Tracks 

Márta Bolba is a Lutheran pastor at Mandák House, in the poorest part of Budapest’s 8th district. The pastor’s congregation, however, includes a church in the wealthier part of the district, the “Palace Quarter”. Her community is socially diverse, but for Márta, “Everyone has a place at Wednesday night dinners, because everyone is equal at the table of the Lord”. Márta is both a pastor and a civil activist; she fights for social equality in offices and at protests. The film follows the pastor and her congregation through the most important stations of the year.

This film is not currently online :(

But no worries. There are more just like it in our new program.
