BOB ENTROP IN FOCUS #4 (Bioscoop Het Ketelhuis)

Het Ketelhuis, Amsterdam | Sunday 18 June | -

This year the Dutch director Bob Entrop celebrated his 70th birthday. Besides this, he has been working in film for 5 years.  Two good reasons to celebrate his work. Entrop has made numerous films on Roma and Sinti culture and succeeded in gaining access to this closed culture. On June 15 Entrops film ‘Shared Pride’ (Gedeelde Trots) will premiere at Cineblend Festival 2017. On June 17 and 18 we will screen a few of his films on Roma and Sinti culture in a retrospective on his work.

After the screening there will be an aftertalk. 

Verbroken Stilte

In Verbroken Stilte (Broken silence) Romani radio reporter Orhan Galjus, born in Kosovo, and filmmaker Bob Entrop travel together through Germany and Poland, in order to find out why the Sinti and Romani people have been silent for so long about the genocide that has been committed against nearly 500.000 of them during World War II. They find their answers through unique encounters and visits to memorial sites. In this journey, Orhan recognizes how history repeats itself. He wants to organise the 12 million Roma and Sinti people into a movement for positive, non-violent change.
