Everyone seems to have an image of “them”, yet to this day genuine encounters remain rare: Sinti and Roma were oppressed for centuries, and marked for total extermination under the Nazis. For this reason too, the title of this year’s Europe Unknown section is a testament to resilience and at the same time an invitation: let us come together to witness the stories that the Roma, Europe’s largest minority group, has to tell us – on both sides of the camera.
Following the first screening on Wednesday 06.11.2019, a film talk will take place at the cinema in the Königsstadt.
Curated by Hamze Bytyci (RomaTrial e.V. / AKE DIKHEA)

In 2009, Nazis throw a Molotov cocktail into the house of a Roma family at night. It hits the youngest daughter in bed and burns 80% of her skin. Her chances of survival: 5%.
