Return to Epipo
There was a summer camp in Hungary in the 1980s where children could escape, for a few weeks, the regulated world of state socialism and become citizens of an imaginary state, Epipo. The memory of Epipo is full of contradictions: some remember it as the best time of their lives, while others recall painful memories, offensive remarks, humiliations, and even worse, abuse. Together with the director, former citizens of Epipo try to find an explanation for the actions of the charismatic camp leader, Pál Sipos, and to decipher how this closed, mystical world functioned.
