WHEN THE ROAD BENDS... TALES OF A GYPSY CARAVAN
The Gypsy Caravan in this exuberant documentary is made up of five different Gypsy bands, from different corners of the globe. They embark on a six-week tour of North America, delighting audiences with programmes ranging from Flamenco to brass, from Romanian violin music to Indian folk. They begin as strangers to one another - connected only by their common Roma history. Throughout the long tour, the musicians begin to share instruments, exchange family customs, play jokes on one another, and finally part with profound sadness.
