Regie, scenariu si producator: Jasmine Dellal
VO / Subitrari in romana

Un film prezentat in colaborare cu American Cultural Center Bucharest

Gypsy Caravan. 5 formatii din 4 tari. Un turneu de 6 saptamani prin SUA in care uimesc publicul cu sunete ce variaza de la flamengo la bass, de la vioara romaneasca la folk-ul indian, de la raga la jazz. Cu focul din buric si pasiunea din voci, prezinta o explozie de sunet si dans care celebreaza cea mai frumoasa muzica tiganeasca si diversitatea rromilor.
Filmul urmareste formatiile pe tot parcursul turneului, atat la concerte cat si in spatele scenei, punand accent pe identitatile celor implicati, pe relatiile care se dezvolta intre artisti ce provin din medii diferite, dar care impartasesc aceleasi experiente – multimi de fani disperati dupa un autograf dar si cafele reci de la automatul motelului si multe farse.

ENGLISH VERSION

5 bands from 4 countries unite for the Gypsy Caravan – a 6-week concert tour across North America with the musicians astounding every audience they meet. Their musical styles range from flamenco to brass band, from Romanian violin and Indian folk to Raga and jazz. And with fire in their bellies and soul in their voices, they present an explosion of song and dance that celebrates the best of Gypsy music and the diversity of the Romani people.
The Gypsy Caravan film follows the breath-taking performances and behind-the-scenes action of a unique concert tour.
We discover the real lives of these musicians; traveling to their homes, meeting their families and seeing what music brings to their lives. At home in Macedonia, Romania, India and Spain, the tales of these characters unfold and are woven between their performances, reflecting the imagery and emotion of the music. We get to know them, allowing us to understand and expand on the riches of their music, history and culture.
During the highs and lows of a whimsical fun-filled U.S. road trip (ranging from screaming fans flocking hundreds of miles for an autograph to cold coffee at Motel-6 machines and plenty of practical jokes), the artists befriend each other and they share the majesty and glory of music whilst overcoming the prejudice that is part of their shared ancestry.
