The Devil's Mills

The everyday life of migrant funfair operators is the filter through which this film views the social and economic factors of the 20th and early 21st century that define the life and work of this social group. Hungary's accession to the EU has presented new challenges and difficulties to the continuation of their traditional trade and lifestyle. Interest in their services has decreased considerably, so this once thriving form of business is now on the decline.
