Swallow Street

We are in Romania, where it’s a cold winter and life is full of contrasts. This is the story of a little boy, David, living in Swallow Street, and the story of a group of people being stigmatized and oppressed for generations.

Originally, a film was made from this story. In this short mixed-media documentary the main characters become makers , and as viewers we relate in a new way with David and the other children of the Swallow Street. You can watch the documentary here (Dutch subtitles): De Zwaluwenstraat
