Debrecen Prison

Ella:  I arrived at the Debrecen prison sweaty, trailing the cinema behind me. Projector, speakers, DVD... here we go!The viewing at the prison was praised.
 Men showed up in the library and volunteered to talk.  
There were two curious questions about the film: 
One - why did Jasmine choose to show the musicians smoking all the time? She says it was tough to avoid cigarettes on camera! But it is a valid question.... and some Roma today are creating basic campaigns to educate against smoking and unhealthy eating. This information always seems to reach poor communities last - whether they are Romani or not..

Two - what was our intention with bringing the film to the prisons? I said they were supposed to have this time out to consider their life philosophy, a time to regenerate, and reassess and learn about themselves, so the film could benefit a Roma person by letting them feel proud of the achievement of fellow Roma, and non-Roma might learn a few things about Roma.  Alright.  They seemed to agree with that.
