Renowned Film School In Revolt Against Hungarian Authorities.

Staff and students at a renowned Hungarian theater and film school are in open revolt after the government transferred control to a private foundation and a board of trustees that critics say is filled with allies of right-wing, nationalist Prime Minister Viktor Orban. Management and staff have resigned, a strike has been called, and students have been blockading the entrance for weeks. Budapest's University of Theater and Film Arts was attended by illustrious alumni like Casablanca director Michael Curtiz.
