On the occasion of International Romani Day, a series of concerts, a debate and a screening of the documentary film “Life and Death in Tanvald” (“Život a smrt v Tanvaldu”) were held at the Cross Club in Prague on Sunday, 7 April 2013. The ROMEA civic association invited one of the producers, Vít Klusák, to discuss the film.

A trailer for the film can be seen online at The filmmakers mapped the tense relations between Czech and Romani people in the town of Tanvald, where a Czech pensioner shot a 22-year-old Romani man to death on New Year’s Day 2012. The case was eventually ruled one of necessary self-defense and the shooter has not been prosecuted.

The 7 April discussion was moderated by Richard Samko of Czech Television. ROMEA TV has posted a video of the entire discussion (in Czech only) here.
