About the Event

Join us for  CineRoma 2.0, the UK’s first Roma Film Festival, now in its second year. Brought to you by Offline (formerly Glasgow Artists’ Moving Image Studios | GAMIS) and Romano Lav, a community-based organisation working with Roma communities in Govanhill, Glasgow. CineRoma aims to present diverse films by and with Roma people, exploring themes such as self-perception, identity, history and systems of power.

The festival programme has been co-curated in collaboration with a cohort of Roma Young People from Govanhill through a series of workshops organised by Offline and Romano Lav.

Citizen Miko

Robin Kvapil 

Czech Republic, 2022

Czech with English Subtitles

75” 

Miko is a truck driver, his father is Romani, and above all he is a man who wants to help those in need. When the Czech government was looking for reasons not to take in a few dozen children from Greek refugee camps after the chemical attacks on Syrian civilians in 2018, Miko took justice into his own hands and, together with the Czechs Helping initiative, prepared facilities for child refugees.
