Romanian nights..



Meanwhile, back in a square in Romania.... Fanfare Ciocarlia and Esma Redzepova just let loose to a dancing square of film festival rabble rousers, and townspeople who couldn’t ignore decibels of loud brass in the center of Sibiu (a city proud to be cultural capital of Europe this year). And the whisper was that this is the first time that the musicians of Fanfare Ciocarlia have played in Romania without feeling that they were scared of the crowd - scared of the ever prevalent Gypsy prejudice. In fact, last year was their first official Romanian concert ever, but they were terrified.... Then they did another show but they weren't comfortable until they knew they would have guest performers on stage with them... And tonight, after a screening of our film, Fanfare played a fantastic concert! As one of their managers put it, they broke the ice and had a good time for the first time on stage in their home country. Definitely cause for celebration! I wonder if racism is the most multicultural and durable commodity on this planet... we've all got it and it sticks around for a bloody long time. Oops, i somehow forgot to mention that my film played on a huge outdoor screen in the same square last night - to incredibly fine reception. Thanks Transylvania.
