A film created and performed by young Roma.

It is a journey through their heritage and across London, examining Britain's ignorance of Romany culture while celebrating the new life Roma youth from eastern Europe are making for themselves.

Produced and directed by Simon Brown.

Dispelling Myths

One of the aims of GRTHM is to counter-balance the widespread ignorance of Traveller communities that often leads to hatred and conflict. Gypsy, Roma and Traveller History Month celebrates our culture and history by tackling the negative stereotyping and prejudices that have led to this situation.
