Titkos örizetbevétel - Konspirative Zuführung
This training film from Hungary shows how a conspiratorial arrest may serve as a first step to sounding out potential unofficial colleagues. Short staged scenarios in the style of a detective film describe in great detail how a code is established to indicate the target person’s absence from work and finally, how an arrest may be made inconspicuously. The use of thriller-style music catapults the action into the fictive realm, creating distance from the fact that attacks on personal rights are a real-life issue.
