Source, The - One Day in a Roma Settlement in Romania
One day in the life of a Roma village, somewhere deep in Romenia. After a pastoral start and a quarrel in the afternoon, peace returns. Recorded with much love and attention (40.min).
Photographer-Filmmaker Jaap de Ruig prepared the film for 17 years and recorded the film in one day. He chose not to subtitle because then: "I would have given too much meaning to words, which divert from the universal character of the images".
