Freedom’s Fury

Freedom’s Fury is an award winning feature documentary produced by Quentin Tarantino about the Hungarian Revolution of 1956 and the ‘Bloodiest Game in Olympic History.’ This hard-hitting film tells the story of the fateful moment in 1956 when Hungary explodes in a people power revolt, which climaxes in the infamous water polo showdown between Hungary and the Soviets at the Melbourne Olympics. Known as the ‘Blood in the Water Match,’ the documentary follows the journey of the Hungarian Olympic water polo team, who find themselves at the centre of one of the most politicized sports match ever played.
