The Gypsy Vote
A documentary featuring a Gypsy leader Vlado Sendrei and his team in an attempt to win elections in “white” Slovakia. What are the odds that the Roma activist Vlado Sendrei and his election team succeeds in a society of “white majority”? Despite expert help from an American foundation, one experiences an unbelievably lively campaign, tragicomical moments, and a glimpse into Roma ghettoes on the verge of society. Vlado's wife Jana openly claims her husband's activities are harmful to his family and Roma values, increasing tensions between them. The Big Day - election day - turns the emotions upside down. The new film by Jaro Vojtek renders a world of deception, and it's only the Gypsy fortune-teller who tells the truth!
Feldvidék. The Land Behind
The film deals with „the Hungarian issue“ in Czechoslovakia after the World War II and an imaginary game of chess between Slovaks and Hungarians making it obvious there is no room for black-and-white vision; the documentary casts light on petty stories of those who lived to be wronged by the mighty and or even the mightiest.
