The Band

The Band

Slovakia, Czech Republic, 2018, 80 min

This creative, cinematographic story chronicles the birth of the Gypsy Band Lomnické Čháve in difficult social circumstances of a Roma settlement in Eastern Slovakia. We tell the tender story of a group of outsiders, who have a great dream: to play their music on a big stage and show the “white gadjos” that they too have talent. They want to make it in the society at large, get out of the ghetto village, grime, poverty and begin living life with dignity. Their dream journey to find success is a powerful, inspirational story of hope and desire, full of emotions, electrifying Roma music and kind humour.
