Lithuania: Vilnius Roma Tell Their Own Story

  April 14, 2014

Roma settlement of Kirtimai is regularly portrayed in the media as a “drug nest”, and the inhabitants of the settlement are accused of being unable to be a part of civilized society. Having much negative experience with national and local press, the Roma of Kirtimai are now being very closed from the rest of the society, which makes inclusion even more problematic. Using the participatory video methods five young members of this Roma community will their own story of life in this settlement and share their daily experiences, challenges and dreams.
