A journey of high stakes and self-discovery through the most intimate thoughts of three Roma girls. Dutch Premiere


Every summer, a few brave Roma girls will enter a beauty pageant in the bid to be called Miss Roma. But what if their dream is not a marriage proposal, but to go to high school and get a diploma? This female director, who also works for the prestigious international sales Dogwoof in UK, succeeded to come close to all her main characters and to build the intimate story of these teenagers with lots of skills and human understanding for their specific life position. One of the rare films that enters the world of Roma youth in this region so profoundly. The film won several awards, a. o. the Best Director Award at the Liburnia Film Festival in 2015, as well as the Audience Award and Ethics and Human Rights Jury Award at the Croatian Film Days in 2015.

Drie Romameisje delen hun diepste gedachten en nemen je mee in hun ontdekkingsreis naar zichzelf.


Elke zomer doen een paar dappere Roma-meisjes mee aan de missverkiezing om Miss Roma te worden. Maar stel je voor zij niet dromen over een huwelijksaanzoek, maar om naar de middelbare school te gaan en een diploma te halen? Deze vrouwelijke regisseur is erin geslaagd om dichtbij al haar hoofdpersonen te komen en het intieme verhaal van deze tieners, met veel talent en begrip voor hun plaats in de maatschappij, te vertellen. Dit is een van de weinige films die zo tot de wereld van de Roma-jeugd weet door te dringen. De film won diverse prijzen, waaronder de Best Director Award op het Liburnia Film Festival in 2015 en de Audience Award en Ethics and Human Rights Jury Award op de Croatian Film Days in 2015.
