Latcho Drom (Tony Gatlif | 1993 | France | PG)
Tony Gatlif | 1993 | France | PG
A one-of-a-kind ‘folk musical’, Tony Gatlif’s cinematic masterpiece celebrates Romany music traditions from their roots in Rajasthan and Egypt to their new homes and journeys across Europe. Part road-movie, part rhapsodic community portrait, and all-parts Romany musical show-case, ‘Latcho Drom’ is one of the great works of cinema: a true epic in its scope, generosity and humanity. Don’t miss it.
This screening was introduced by a live performance of Scots Traveller songs from Jess Smith.
