Homelands film released on DVD - buy your copy now
Zuzana Hruskova and Marek Šulík's Homelands film created during the first year of our 'Homelands' project has just been released on DVD. To order a copy please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Their film documents Roma families in the west-end of Newcastle recording emotional messages in the form of videos, photographs, handwritten letters, audio recordings being carefully delivered to their relatives back in Slovakia. Responses were then filmed and the process was repeated. The result is a beautiful commentary on the reasons for migration and the consequences to families and communities.
