MERRY IS THE GYPSY LIFE

 UNDER THE SAME SKY. Films for people who defy labels

Bulgaria, 2018, 56’
Director: Ludmila Zhivkova, Documentary

For the first time in the history of Bulgarian cinema, a Romani is in the
director’s chair: Ludmila Zhivkova has devoted her life on all levels since
the age of 17 to providing young Roma with higher education: with this
documentary film featuring a wealth of material and an unhurried hand, she
offers us insight into the little known history of the Roma and Sinti during
the Second World War. A work that becomes a research and educational project
on an equal footing treating racism, the Holocaust, and the specific setting
of Bulgaria.
