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”.
