Nominated for Best Documentary Feature at the Tribeca Film Festival.

Csanád Szegedi, a Holocaust denier who passionately espoused anti-Semitic rhetoric, quickly rose through the ranks of Hungary’s far-right extremist Jobbik Party. But, at the height of his political success, Szegedi’s world is rocked when he learns that his beloved grandmother was a Jewish Auschwitz survivor.

Szegedi emerges from his emotional conflict with an interest in Judaism and begins the process of becoming an Orthodox Jew, with the help of Rabbi Boruch Oberlander, an empathetic Chabad rabbi from Budapest. Keep Quiet follows Szegedi through this three-year process and leaves us wondering if Szegedi had a remarkable transformation... or just nowhere else to turn.

Running time: 97 min
