Freedom's Fury is the critically acclaimed feature documentary about the Hungarian Revolution of 1956 and the "Bloodiest Game in Olympic History." In this powerful film, the story is finally told about the fateful moment of 1956 when Hungary explodes in a people's power revolt and climaxes with the infamous water polo showdown between Hungary and the Soviet Union at the Melbourne Olympics. Now known as the "Blood in the Water Match" the documentary follows the heart-wrenching journey of the Hungarian Olympic water polo team and its young star, Eervin Zador, who find themselves the unwitting focal point of the most politicized sports match every played.
"This film should be required viewing. Truly enthralling."
