An introduction from the Artistic Director, Sami Mustafa
In recent years international media have brought attention to the Gypsy roots (English-Roma) of one of cinema’s greatest icons, Charlie Chaplin. To mark the 100th year anniversary of his first film, the fourth edition of Rolling Film Festival will open with a screening of “The Kid”, Chaplin’s first feature-length film. Regardless of the issues that are faced by Roma communities in every day life, this edition of the festival is inspired by character-driven stories that go beyond the concept of characterizing an individual as “being Roma”. These movies provide us with greater insight in to the personal stories of the people involved on a basic human level.
