UNDER THE PALACE WALL From the 16th century the Indian village of Delwara in southern Rajastan was ruled as a principality of the kingdom of Mewar. Its palace, which overlooks the village, is now a luxury hotel – a world remote from the daily life of villagers. Following off from his film SchoolScapes, which was inspired by the early cinema of Lumiere, David MacDougall here employs a series of precisely observed scenes to explore Delwara´s local primary school as a part of contemporary village life – a life that continues „under the palace wall“.
David MacDougall is an ethnographic filmmaker and writer on cinema. He has filmed in East Africa (The Jie films and „Turkana Conversation“ trilogy), Australia, and India. In 2005 he filmed at a shelter for homeless children in New Delhi, producing Gandhi´s Children. MacDougall  writes regulary on cinema and is the author of Transcultural Cinema and The Corporeal Image: Film, Ethnography , and the Sense. He is presently Adjunct Professor at the Australian National University, where he is directing the project „Childhood and Modernity: Indian Children´s Perspectives“.

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.
