Scope and Content (Narrative)
Altogether about 50 hours of unedited video material, rough cuts and the final version of Béla Nóvé’s feature long documentary film ’Patria nostra: Minor Hungarians in the French Foreign Legion’ (2016) is the core of this sub-collection. The film is available with French and English subtitles. The collection includes photo documentation of the various field trips and filming events. The donor’s PhD dissertation; a historical monograph with the same subject and title ’Patria nostra’, published by Balassi Kiadó in 2016 is also in this sub-fonds. Resumes and other media material, including interviews with Nóvé, relating to the book & film project are detailing the background of the five year long research and shooting project. The video interviews with Hungarian French Foreign Legion veterans in Provence, Corsica, and their native land, Hungary are of special interest.
