Multiple awards-winning Me, My Gypsy Family & Woody Allen is the story of the Halilović family who came to Italy from Bosnia Herzegovina at the end of the '60s, and lived in caravans until 1996. It is an intimate portrayal of the end of a nomadic lifestyle and the difficulties of settling into a council flat. Told in first person, with irony and wit, Laura documents the process of accepting her origins. According to her family, she should already be married, but she is determined to decide for herself and fight for her dream: to become a film director. A portrait of a small community made from the perspective of an insider, presenting a different, deeply personal insight into Roma culture.
Part of the Roma film season at Rivington Place to accompany the exhibition Roma-Sinti-Kale-Manush
