“My work has two strands: the first one deals with direct political images of violence, aggression and protest, mostly in Israeli-Palestinian context. It’s critique of news media, researching the complex, both realistic and surrealistic aspects of these images. The second strand of videos is more abstract and universal, dealing with cognitive, environmental and existential issues,” says the director about his works.

Roma musicians are the heroes of this documentary film, directed by Robert Lakatos. Usin short, often contrastingly intermittent cuts, this film of folkloric imagination materialises the energy of a Roma musical gruop that wanders throught town and the neighbourhood of its housing settlement. The music is the impetus behind the movement in the film, and following its rythm the film presents the panorama of feelings and experiences of life on the periphery.
