Winner of the Best Director Award at Cannes, Time of the Gypsies
tells the story of a young Roma (Gypsy) who has telekinetic powers.
He lives in a small village in Yugoslavia with his grandmother,
physically handicapped sister, and gambling uncle. His life is
turned upside down when a charismatic gangster lures him
down a road of petty crime – leaving his family and fiancée
for the vices of Milan. Upon his return home, things are far
from how he left them. (Digital presentation)
