Opre Roma : Tsiganes au Canada

Opre Roma : Tsiganes au Canada

| 52 min

Ce long métrage documentaire célèbre la culture vibrante et le long cheminement des Tsiganes au Canada. Le spectateur assiste à un mariage tsigane traditionnel et à une soirée de flamenco animée par les chants de la Turquie, de la Roumanie, de l'Espagne, de la République tchèque et de la Slovaquie. Nous y faisons la connaissance de Julia Lovell, ardente défenseure des droits du peuple rom, de son père, qui dévoile timidement ses origines, et de Karen Gray Boothroyd, une danseuse de flamenco qui commence tout juste à revendiquer son identité tsigane. La musique porteuse des siècles d'exil tisse un lien entre leurs histoires. En anglais avec sous-titres français.
