Wednesday, 22.01.2020 20:00A PEOPLE UNCOUNTEDDirector Aaron Yeger Canada 2011, 99 min., OVThe Screening is Followed by a talk with William BilaA PEOPLE UNCOUNTEDOn the occasion of the 75th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz on the 27th of January, we show the documentary A PEOPLE UNCOUNTED. Filmed in 11 countries and featuring dozens of Roma – including Holocaust survivors, historians, activists, and musicians – A PEOPLE UNCOUNTED brings the Romani history to life through the rich interplay of poetry, music, and compelling firsthand accounts. As ethnic intolerance flares up across Europe, this documentary presents the story of the Roma as emblematic of the world’s legacy of racism and genocide.William Bila is one of the film’s protagonists. He has served as the Vice President for the Roma Community Centre in Toronto, on the boards of Roma Education Support Trust (UK), Roma Education Fund (CH, SK, RO), and as president of La Voix des Rroms (F). Bila was born and raised in the United States in a Slovak-Roma family. He speaks Slovak, French, Spanish, German, Czech and native English.SO DIKHEA? WHAT DO YOU SEE?Romani Perspectives in FilmCurated by Hamze BytyçiSO DIKHEA? WHAT DO YOU SEE?What is cliche and what is reality when it comes to the Romani people? Can films about Romani people do without stereotypes? The film series SO DIKHEA? WHAT DO YOU SEE? deals with the consequences of the images and narratives which have been created about, and not with Romani people over centuries. For a thousand years the Romani people have been part of Europe and have shaped its cultures and societies; and yet, they are still perceived as foreign and not belonging. Antiziganism makes us blind to the multi-faceted, complex reality: the reasons for the emigration of the Romani people from the Balkan countries are often disregarded, the importance of labour migration for an aging society is being ignored. In order to change this, the film series SO DIKHEA? WHAT DO YOU SEE? invites for a closer look and discussion. In Kooperation mit dem Roma-Filmfestival Ake Dikhea?
