GIRL, ARE YOU MARRIED? Until the 1990s the Mexican Roma people were living a nomadic life and travelling around Mexico with their travelling movies.
Electricity, television and video records put their business to end. Some of them are still wandering, but the majority of them took an advantage of the favorable land prices in the growing urban agglomerations, built houses and settled down.
Do they feel at home in the houses they had built? They accepted that one can feel at home anywhere while he brings its world over.
The Roma people from Guadalajara have been living settled on the outskirts of the city of Guadalajara – district Zapopan for about 20 years. They form a community of aproximately five to six hundred of persons and usually present themselves as Gypsies or Hungarians. How much have to do with their European relatives? And what do they have in common with their Mexican neighbors ?
The documentary relates the daily life of these Roma community as it occurs in the suburbs of Guadalajara. Have these people managed to maintain their way of life based on the compliance with the traditions of their ancestors and respect for the membership in their lineage. And if yes, how? 

Felipe Moran has a Bachelor's Degree in Performing Arts (CECA, TELEVISA, Mexico) and Communication (Univ, Mexico) and Master's Degree in Film Production and Screenwriting (Form and plot, Madrid) and in Documentary Film (ECIB, Barcelona).
He worked as a filmmaker for various television channels – both Mexican and international – among them for example Univision.

Currently is PhD student at the Institute of European Ethnology, Brno, working for People in peril organization, Bratislava and studying painting at the Faculty of Fine Arts in Brno.

HAIGHT LOVE

USA, 2015, 15 min

HAIGHT LOVE The Haight Ashbury district of San Francisco became a site of historical significance following its central role as the epicenter of the counter-cultural movement in the 1960s. In contemporary times it has transformed into a commercialized tourist attraction that draws on its unique historical context. The Haight Ashbury remains to be a popular congregational place for homeless and transient youth in the United States. The community of youth that gathers here is often at odds with other factions of housed residents and commercial vendors in the district. The Haight's identity is under constant contestation between these commonly opposed groups. The homeless and transient youth population are critiqued in a variety of ways as a result of their lifestyle. Haight Love represents this multifaceted issue and lends an opportunity for the youth themselves to discuss their experiences in order to foster a more compassionate understanding of their lives.

Grant Hayes was born and raised in the state of California in the United States. He is an aspiring Visual Anthropologist currently pursuing his Masters at San Francisco State University in California. Previously he attained his Bachelors degree in Anthropology at San Francisco State University. Grant has a strong inclination toward producing media that mediates between varied antagonistic sets of relationships among groups of people. Grant believes that the value of film in transmitting anthropological critique is its capacity to reach wider audiences and to have greater accessibility. Haight Love is the first and only film he has yet prod uced. Many more are sure to come.
