Tom Merino opens film in Pasadena

      At the opening screening in Pasadena today, audience members met Tom Merino - a Romani filmmaker based in Los Angeles. The moments that make me feel proudest of this film are when other people take ownership of it. Tom hadn't seen the film before so I smiled at the 8 minute phone message and a blow-by-blow account of the questions and of how he pointed some things out to the audience:
 - notice how Esma says that "we never started any wars"
 - notice that the film is dedicated to the Decade of Roma Inclusion, because Roma need to be included in the societies where they live
 - notice that the singing is beautiful, but it's not just song and dance.

Thanks Tom!
