There remain some people who make the most out of life, who find it great to have so much space and to animate a place that is otherwise just somewhere where people hang about with half-pipes, home-made Jacuzzis and parties.

Deutschland 2015 – Director: Anna Frances Ewert, Falk Müller – English subtitles
Nadeshda is one of Bulgaria’s biggest Roma ghettos: a closed town within a town. The place has its own particular rules and problems and there are few chances to escape. We follow three children, Misho, Zorka and Tsveti, on a journey through the ghetto, learning to play the violin in a music project or somehow coming to terms with living in a garage. Yet they dream of a future beyond the ghetto and most of all beyond ostracism and prejudice.
