The Romany Trail Part Two: Gypsy Music Into Africa
The Romany Trail Part Two takes you to India to find what are believed to be the original Gypsy families whose descendents migrated across the Middle East to Africa and Europe. In India, the familiar acrobats, bear trainers, puppeteers, actors, magicians and musicians are there, many with the same family names as European Gypsies. Then it’s on to Eastern Europe, among the oppressed Gypsy communities of then-Communist Europe, into workers’ hostels, private homes, and community streets where Gypsies are found-a penetrating underground tour of a fabled people’s existence.

Also, a short clip from Tony Gatliff’s Latcho Drom featuring La Caita and Remedios Amaya.

Please join us for a small party following the films to mark the culmination of our winter film series.
All are invited for another fun evening of fine films, discussion, tapas and drinks!

Dos Lunares Film Night, Feb 17

Filed under: Film Series — Dos Lunares @ 10:27 pm

El Cable 2
El Cable with Martin Chico

Thanks to the enthusiastic response we received from our inaugural film night, we’ve been eagerly anticipating presenting the second film in our series, Tao Ruspoli’s El Cable (30 minutes).
The film is described as an “electrifying portrait of flamenco singer and dancer, and gypsy bohemian Rafael ‘El Cable.’” The documentary provides “an insider’s glimpse into the Gypsy flamenco scene in Seville, with appearances by such legends as Juan Del Gastor, Juan Camas, Martin Chico and many others.”

To round out the evening of engaging Flamenco films, we’ll also be showing Los Almendros-Plaza Nueva (30 minutes).

We invite you to join us for a fun evening of discussion, tapas, drinks and fine films!
