A Roma woman buried alive in a forest in Poland during WWII returns to haunt us, uncovering a history of atrocities against the Roma in Europe, in Roz Mortimer‘s ghost story for the 21st Century. It fluidly interweaves fantastical re-imaginings of buried secrets with a ghostly narration and direct to camera testimony from survivors and witnesses of historic and contemporary crimes against the Roma in Poland and Hungary. Mortimer is in conversation following the screening.
This event is part of our season Ways of Knowing: Earth / Matter.
