Peter Hegedus is the grandson of the Hungarian Prime Minister who famously called in Russian troops to put down the Hungarian Uprising in 1956.

Growing up in socialist Hungary, Peter overdosed on 1980s American movies and the values he thought they promoted: truth, justice and hope for a safer world.  20 years later, determined to find out what happened to his America: from Brisbane to Budapest, Tiananmen Square to Tehran, and from the make-shift shelters of Kenya's refugee campus to the White House.

A story for our time, My America opens in cinemas across Australia  - against a backdrop of the 2012 US Presidency Elections and on-going uprisings and unrest as the Middle East takes its turn to struggle with political change.
