Gypsy Caravan film opening in New York

New York, 12.6.2007 14:06, (Romano liloro)

5 bands from 4 countries on a 6-weeks tour across America. Dazzling performances. Full theaters. Backstage chaos. Giggles, tears and friendships. Poverty and a wedding in Romania, a transvestite in Rajasthan, racism in California, political triumph in Macedonia... it's all there.

Johnny Depp admires them, crowds flock to sell out their shows, and one of the musicians just makes it home in time to die among family. This rich feature documentary is a dramatic journey of highs and lows, with raw powerful music, reflecting the harsh but triumphant history of Romani people through the centuries.

GYPSY CARAVAN is a wild celebration of the musical world of the Roma, juxtaposed to the real world they live in. Luscious music interweaves with the stirring real life tales of the artists’ homes and families. Shot by documentary icon Albert Maysles, the film takes place on WMI’s tour across North America and in the artists’ homes around the world. Directed by Jasmine Dellal.
