Filmoteka International Film Night: Gadjo Dilo

  • Studio Robazzo 2001-F Douglas Street Victoria, BC, V8T 4K9 Canada (map)

Join us for the first ever "Filmoteka" International Film Night at Studio Robazzo!

"Filmoteka" is a curated selection of international and art house film screenings in Victoria, BC. Join us to snack on popcorn, sip wine, and indulge in the cultures of the world. If there is enough interest in the community, we will make this a monthly tradition, complimenting the existing monthly Babble Bar Language Exchange. 

Our first film season has a Gypsy focus; join us in discovering the mysterious and vibrant culture of Roma people around the world, starting with "Gadjo Dilo" (The Crazy Stranger):

Stéphane, a young French man from Paris, travels to Romania. He is looking for the singer Nora Luca, whom his father had heard all the time before his death. Wandering along a frozen road, he meets old Izidor, a Rom (Gypsy) and tries tell him of Nora Luca. Drunken Izidor only hears the handful of Romani words and takes Stephane to his village, determined to teach the boy the Romani language.

Admission is €2 or $2
