Jasmina, Toplica and Claudia live in an informal settlement on the outskirts of Belgrade. Like other Roma families in the neighbouring shacks, they live in extreme poverty as a result of discrimination and exclusion. Through experience of migration and deportation to and from Germany, Jasmina lives separated from her parents and brothers.This film looks into the struggles of making a living on the margins of society. It also explores how the protagonists remember life in Western Europe and hope to go back there in the near future. Jasmina’s and Tony’s everyday life is permeated by thoughts of escaping, migrating and providing Jasmina’s daughter with a better prospect of life.

THE ORCHARD KEEPERS / 28 MIN

The Orchard keepers takes us on a journey into the rugged the Sinai desert. Behind intricate stonewalls we meet Dr. Ahmad, the last surviving herbalist trained in the ancient ways of desert healing. But it is Amariya – the resilient and exuberant naturalist whose scars and charms dominate the tale. Her relationship to the land has transformed her life in unlikely ways. The Orchard keepers pays homage to her hypnotic freedom.
For filmmaker Bryony Dunne, what began as a short photography trip to focus on the few remaining orchards, evolved into a personal breakthrough. After living for a year with the Gabaliya tribe, she gained unique insight into the stratified tribal structures and layers of myth that enshroud the mountain region.

Director, Script, Camera: Bryony Dunne
