SECRETS OFFERIHEGY AIRPORT (I-II)

A two-hour documentary about Ferihegy, the international airport in Budapest, Hungary

Secrets of Ferihegy Airport, originally created for television as a five-part series, is the first documentary to show the many places and jobs normally hidden from passengers travelling through Ferihegy. We are presented all these "secrets" from a unique and personal perspective - instead of using narration and actors, the filmmakers decided to turn to the real experts and ask the (usually shy) airport employees themselves to be our guides.

Online version, with English voice-over

115 minutes total running time, two parts

Original music composed by Hangar Digital
