Giving Ownership of Solutions back to the Community
A team in Skopje work with the Roma community on a film about discrimination.
Our programme ensures that solutions to hate, polarisation and extremism are locally led, driven by youth and the communities themselves. In Skopje, North Macedonia, team Takat was committed to securing the buy-in from the Roma community to produce their film, “Dance in this Chaos”, which was centred on the discrimination faced by Roma people, and filmed in a Roma neighbourhood in Skopje.
They involved local Roma perspectives and talent in the production of the movie, and fostered a jovial environment of collaboration between the Roma community, the production team, and the municipality. Who provided permissions and closed roads to enable filming to take place. Their film eventually went on to win the Grand Prix at the Romano Film Festival, dedicated to highlighting and preserving Romani culture.View Campaign
