Gypsies| 1hr : 32mins
Director: Stanislaw Mucha | Producer: Kurt Otterbacher
Focus Years: 2007 | Country: Germany
There are already more gypsies in Europe than Danish people. Estimates range between six to 11 million people. In spite of being everywhere, they are mostly invisible. Nowadays, Europeans know more about deep sea fish than about gypsies. Our film tries to change that. It depicts the truly dreadful circumstances under which gypsies live in this country of the European Union - no drinking water, no electricity nor waste disposal; racism, exclusion and open discrimination - without casting them as mere victims. He doesn't want to prove anything, he just wants us to look, and that's already asking a lot! A political film that goes beyond political correctness.
