Eye-opening documentary from Bulgarian Roma ghetto
15 October 2009 | by (Czech Republic) – See all my reviews

This documentary depicts life of Sliven, one of the Romani ghettos in Bulgaria. The forced ghettoization of the Roma in one place away from the town, the life of its own that the town has and the effort the locals take to keep the Roma separate from the schools and work in the town.

As I found out, this is a controversial issue for many and the views on the Roma and their place in the society differ. Whose fault is it they can't adjust, do they want to adjust and should they be forced to do so, those and other questions are always present in countries of the former Eastern block in Europe especially.

This documentary is a great depiction of the efforts of one man and several children to get a better education than is offered to them and a real eye opener. Highly recommended to everyone who wishes to know more rather than repeat the clichés on the Roma repeated by the majority of the society.
