Today in Roma Day Observance….
Gypsy culture make us look in a mirror to all immigrants and remind us that regardless of our background or religion most of us share a common history.
This is the trailer of the just released movie in the US directed by Tony Gatlif: Korkoro.
Committed Gypsy culture chronicler Tony Gatlif (very famous for his movie Latcho Drom) dramatizes the TRUE story of a migrant family in Nazi- occupied France.
A movie that I will go watch… And is currently being shown at the Cinema Village.
Get some culture and do some dancing… See you this weekend!
