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.

SEARCHING FOR THE EXIT

Česká republika, 2015, 26 min
Michal Pavlásek
29.01.2016 19:00

Searching for the exit is a personal documentary insight into one of the most debated topics of today – the forced migration of refugees coming to Europe. The Balkan route is the main migratory gateway into Europe. Having spent several summer weeks among the refugees, the filmmaker had the possibility to build close personal relationships with people coming mostly from Syria, Afghanistan, Iraq, and Pakistan. This recurring pattern of friendship is constantly present in the film thanks to Hussein, a young man from Basra in Iraq who is forced to forget a terrible life tragedy. Hussein’s journey represents a transition between the past and the future, while the filmmaker experiences it as a constant materialization of the uncertainty and dilemmas resulting from his EU citizenship. The passport in his pocket makes him confront his privileged position with the situation of the people he meets during the journey despite the fact that the distance between him and the refugees is often totally erased. The film depicts various encounters and situations from the Balkan route and brings a personal testimony about the border area and state controls, media coverage, volunteer aid, widely spread stereotypes and grey economy. These images and refugee testimonies allow the viewer to experience their journey, get a close up on migration, become a refugee.

Michal Pavlásek is researcher in The Institute of Ethnology of the Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic, v.v.i. Brno. Author is member of Anthropictures - flexible association of social scientists providing independent field research focused on visual and urban anthropology.
