About the event

In our April Café, we'll screen Tony Gatlif's musical love letter to Europe's Roma communities – LATCHO DROM. Made more than 25 years ago, it is a meticulously and beautifully crafted documentary examining the Romany culture and traditions across Europe with a stunning music score.

We’ll also host a post-film conversation with Roma artists and thinkers, exploring their work and what life is like today for Roma communities across Europe.

Summary: Meticulously crafted documentary examining the Romany culture and traditions around the world, opening in the summer and concluding the following spring. Tony Gatlif's film compares and contrasts the rituals of Romanys from as far apart as India, Egypt, Turkey, Romania, Spain, France, Hungary and Slovakia - seeing how the community interacts and how singing and dancing are such an integral part of the Romany way of life.
