Winner of the Silver Bear and two more prizes at the Berlinale 2012. An intense and compelling drama that follows a day in the life of a Roma family in Hungary after a series of racist attacks on their community. The film is based on true events.


Mari lives with her two children and their grandfather in a shack in the woods outside the city. Their living conditions are modest, like their other Roma neighbours. The recent killings of members of five Roma families put her life on the edge. Living in fear of the racist terror that surrounds them and feeling abandoned by the silent majority, the family tries to get through the day. Working double shifts, Mari tries to earn enough money to go to Canada, where her husband has already moved to. Teenage daughter Anna tries her best to concentrate in school, while young Rio is busy doing other things. He is getting ready… This remarkable film won many awards at the major film festivals. One of the MUST SEE films of the European cinema.

Made possible through the courtesy of European Parliament Information Office in the Netherlands and LUX prize.


Winnaar van de Zilveren Beer en nog twee prijzen op de Berlinale 2012. Een intens en meeslepend drama dat een dag in het leven van een Roma-familie in Hongarije toont na een reeks racistische aanvallen op hun gemeenschap. De film is gebaseerd op ware gebeurtenissen.


Met haar twee kinderen en hun grootvader woont Mari in een hut in de bossen buiten de stad. Hun leefomstandigheden zijn bescheiden. De recente moorden op leden van vijf Roma-families zette haar leven op scherp. Terwijl ze in angst leven voor de racistische terreur om hen heen en zich in de steek gelaten voelen door de (zwijgende) meerderheid, probeert de familie de dag door te komen. Door dubbele diensten te werken probeert Mari genoeg geld te verdienen om naar Canada te gaan, waar haar man al naartoe is verhuisd. Tienerdochter Anna doet haar best om zich te concentreren op school, terwijl de jonge Rio is druk met andere dingen. Hij bereidt zich voor… Deze opmerkelijke film won vele prijzen op de grote filmfestivals. Een van de MUST SEE-films van de Europese cinema.
