Miri Fajta

  • Czech Republic
Audio Tracks 

The central figure of the documentary is Robin Stria, an amateur filmmaker who is trying to create the first Roma sitcom in the Czech Republic. Its title - Miri Fajta - means My Family in Romani, and the Romani creator wants to tell a story about Romani using Romani actors. At the same time, it offers him the opportunity to think more deeply about his identity and show it at a time when the issue of self-awareness is also a problem of representation, because Roma creators are scarce. The sitcom’s director is aware of the importance of representation in the media, and the documentary of which he is a hero points out the absence of minority performances, where they are not only the object of observation, but themselves become creative factors.
