Slum Stories: Romania - Gyuri
Andrei Dascalescu / Netherlands, Romania / 2010 / 8 min. / Czech Lang.

The protagonist and guide in this film is a small Roma boy called Gyuri. When he grows up, he would like to be a truck driver or policeman. At the moment, he lives with his parents and four siblings in a small wooden shack that is difficult to heat in winter. The situation is the same for about 70 members of Roma families who, in 2004, were relocated next to a stinking sewage-treatment plant and told it was only a temporary measure. Nonetheless, not even the desperate conditions in their settlement prevent Gyuri and his friends from playing their daily games.
