EVERY PARTY MATTERS is a short documentary film about queer resistance in Budapest through underground nightlife culture. The film mainly follows the two co-founders of a music collective called OMOH – Alexandr and Peter – as they go about organizing queer-centered parties in a country that is largely hostile to sexual minorities. Bearing in mind that queer people are still negatively portrayed in such a context, this film aims to shed light on a topic that affects many Hungarians today – whether visibly out or still ‘in the closet’. The aim was also to help break the taboo around discussing the topic, and to give a voice to queer organizers to tell their own story of navigating Budapest and its nightlife scene.
EVERY PARTY MATTERS aims to reach a general audience of CEU students and young people generally around the world by showcasing a group of relatable people struggling to affirm what are in fact universal human rights.
The discussion after the screening will be led by the creators of the documentary Isabelle and Rebeca with the presence of one or more of the protagonists. Contact: firstname.lastname@example.org or marques-rocha_Rebeca@spp.ceu.edu
