In a camp of grass-root initiatives Valyo (Urban River) and FÁK a Rómain (Trees Should Stay on Romai Beach), a group of 15 volunteers built the necessary installations for Romai Free Beach Test Day in the summer of 2019.
ABOUT THE FILMMAKERS
Valyo – City and River Association is a social organization active in the fields of urbanism, environmental protection, and culture. They have been involved in community public space renewal since 2011. The team works on raising awareness and facilitating appreciation of the coasts of the river Danube that are currently inaccessible to the public in Budapest due to heavy car traffic. They draw attention to exciting Danube sites with the means of art and community development and make proposals for their utilization – without the need to consume and pay just for the sake of being allowed to be there.
Their other film in a previous festival edition is Szabihíd – A Bridge of Liberty.
