THE DEADLESS WOMAN
2021 International Feature Documentary Film Competition / Popular
UK, 2019, 90’
Director: Roz Mortimer
This urgent and magical hybrid documentary fluidly interweaves fantastical
re-imaginings of buried secrets with a ghostly narration and direct to camera
testimony from survivors and witnesses of historic and contemporary crimes
against the Roma in Poland and Hungary.
A Roma woman buried alive in a forest in Poland during WWII returns to haunt
us, uncovering a history of atrocities against the Roma in Europe. She is the
Deathless Woman. Motivated by rage, she rises from her grave to draw our
attention to the persecution of the Roma people from the 1940s to the NeoNazi hate crimes of the present day.
