Kadar's Kiss.

A film by Peter Forgacs. Gleaned from found footage and home movies and assembled by Peter Forgacs, this film presents an exploration of the terrain of "everyday erotics" during the post-WWII Communist regime in Hungary. Intercut with radio addresses by First Secretary Janos Kadar, speaking against individualsm and preaching the birth of a New Man and the advent of the socialist egalitarian era, its double speak and shameless ideological political perversion contradicts the everyday life behind the doors of private homes as Forgacs ironically explores this chapter of official and private histories. 1998.
