This chapter focuses on the two films A Bibó Reader and Miss Universe 1929. The thirteenth series of Private Hungary, A Bibó Reader, explores the life and times of the esteemed twentieth-century Hungarian scholar István Bibó. His methodology, drawing upon both public and private archives from a period predating multimedia and digital photography, elicits a contemplative reflection on the connection of amateur film to public and private interpretation, thereby interrogating the very notion of collective memory. Winner of the documentary film competition prize of the Thirty-Eighth Hungarian Film Festival in Budapest (2007), Documentary Selection for the 2006 Viennale, and nominated by the UK Federation of Commercial Audiovisual Libraries International Award for Best Use of Footage in Factual Productions, Miss Universe 1929 was an official selection at the Sixth Annual Tribeca Film Festival, New York City, in the World Documentary Feature Competition.
