We are thrilled THE DEATHLESS WOMAN has received the Special Jury Award from Ake Dikhea? Festival of Romani Film! Jury statement: “This film has significant value in highlighting the importance of commemoration and remembrance for Romani Holocaust victims but also effortlessly weaves together how the historical persecution of Romani people connects with the present day reality and rise in far right fascism across Europe particularly in the Hungarian context. It sends a clear call to action for wider society. A must watch.”

Sites of Collective Memory comprises four new moving image works that offer intimate portraits of individuals, witnesses to historic events at places that resonate with individual and shared remembrance. Each work takes testimony as its starting point, reflecting on personal experiences of iconic and historic moments – the bombing of Hiroshima, the massacre of Polish Gypsies in WWII, and the 7/7 London bombings – and in contrast, the private experiences passed down through British Romani families. Through these works we may consider how representations of history and culture are shared in our collective consciousness.
