Recommend this film

Have you ever seen a faucet for wine and liquor? Or a house in all colours of the rainbow, combining the aesthetics of ancient Greece with PVC joinery into the unique style of rocco-barocco? Or an LCD TV six feet under? Welcome to the picturesque world of the Kalderash Roma – a closed community of no more than 1 million people all over the world. Concrete Pharaohs takes us on a journey into the lifestyle and traditions of the most hidden and intriguing Roma communities. A charismatic Gypsy baron will walk us through his stories and his huge new house. We will learn the hot trends in Roma tombstone design. We will go down into the underground homes of African granite, furnished with beds, wardrobes, stereos and a charged cell phone – a direct line to the other world. CONCRETE PHARAOHS is a celebration of life and afterlife in all of their manifestations.
