The Curse Of The Hedgehog

Dumitru Budrala

Director Budrala spent a whole year with a large Gypsy family of so-called Baesi group. They are nomads who live in great poverty. In order to survive, they spend their winters traveling and selling their handicrafts. Why have they chosen such a hard life? Does their Orthodox religion has something to do with it? Why do they refuse to work ‘like everybody else’? And, lastly, how can they have fun after all?
