La BM du Seigneur
April 1 2pm
Fred Dorkel is a member of the itinerant Yenish community for whom respect for elders and religious piety are just as much part of life as vandalism. Both feared and respected, Fred steals cars for a living. One night, an angel appears and his life changes forever. Fred sees this as a sign of redemption he feels bound to seize and decides to get back on the straight and narrow. But his family has other ideas.
Mange tes morts
April 1 6pm
18-year-old Jason Dorkel belongs to a Travelling community. He is about to celebrate his baptism when his half-brother Fred returns after fifteen years in prison. Together, with their last remaining brother, violent and reckless Mickael, the three Dorkels set off in search of a cargo of copper in the world of the gadjo (non-Romani).
Both film screenings will be followed by Q&As with the director and students and teachers from HEAR’s No Name and Narraction groups.
