Showing of “Latcho Drom”

Sunday 16th april – 2pm


On the occasion of the music festival Al-Kamandjati, the association will show the movie “Latcho Drom” by Tony Gatlif, followed by a discussion with the art director of the movie, Alain Weber.

“Latcho Drom” by Tony Gatlif – France – 1992 – 1h43
(No dialogues)
This cult film tells in music the history of the Rom people from India to Spain across the Arab world, Turkey and Eastern Europe. Poetic, nomadic and timeless Latcho Drom which means “Have a nice trip” in romani language remains unique in its style and cinematic approach. A real tribute to traditional music!

The association is looking for an intern for the period of october 2017-may 2018 to participate in our activities. If you’re interested, please send a CV and motivation letter to info@hebron-france.org !
