What it’s about
What do you see when you look at me? What do I see when I look at myself? What do I see when I look at you?
Every day, Sinti:zze and Rom:nja move in a world of external ascriptions and prejudice. Numerous clichés are projected onto them: they are expected to be music-making nomads and hot-blooded dancers, footloose and fancy-free, with romantic camp-fires in the forest as part of the package. But what if reality departs from these hardened stereotypes? And what, if not?
Why you need to be there
The director and Sinto Stefan Herrmann joins together with Sinti:zze and Rom:nja from Hungary and Germany to tell stories of empowerment and self-assertion, double-exclusion, perpetuated stereotypes, and attempts at deconstructing them. Together with the Hungarian dance-ensemble »Romano Glaszo«, he asks how the visibility of one’s own identity can work in a world of prejudice. What price am I willing to pay in my fights to overcome resistance?
Stereotypes are turned upside down here.
