Film: "Forbidden Relations"

"Visszaesok" (a.k.a. "Forbidden Relations) is a film made in 1983 Leninist Hungary, based on the real case of half-siblings who fell in love when they met as adults, and were thrown in jail repeatedly for refusing to abort their children. This is the second trial scene, and even though the movie is three decades old, the arguments made in it are still relevant. Watch the movie here. (Trigger warning: The gender relations in Hungary at the time were hardly progressive. There's one scene where they argue and he hits her.)
