OUR SCHOOL

  • Release Year: 2011
  • Runtime: 93 minutes
  • Directed By: Miruna Coca-Cozma and Mona Nicoara
  • Country: USA, Romania, Switzerland

Touching on issues ranging from institutionalized prejudice, public education, and the intractability of poverty, but always firmly rooted in the hypnotic rhythms and profound reality of the Roma community, Our School is a deeply affecting, often infuriating, and ultimately bittersweet story of tradition and progress. | Read More
