With filmmaker Carrie Haber. The film is about a pig farm in Bohemia, Czech Republic, that occupies a former concentration camp for Roma. Each spring, Czech Roma go there to honour their murdered kin and to demonstrate the need for change in a European-wide system that is complicit in their ghettoization and destruction to this day. But government officials and locals feel that moving the farm would be bad for business. Discussion to follow film. All are welcome.
