Directed by Tony Gatlif
In Romany, "Latcho Drom"
means "safe journey." This haunting, vibrant, seamless, award-winning film
is neither a documentary nor a fiction film but a musical that tells the
story of the historic odyssey of the Gypsies from India to Egypt and the
pain and joy of being in an outsider culture. With gypsy musicians from
India, Egypt, Turkey, Romania, Hungary, Slovakia, France and Spain. Winner
of the Prix Gervais at the Cannes Film Festival. "Remarkable…exuberant,
passionate…at times ecstatic" (Michael Wilmington, Chicago Tribune).
Romany with English subtitles. 103 minutes.
