In a small village in Romania Tourists from all over the world are invited to observe the everyday life of one Roma family and several Roma communities.
The gaze as the very definition of othering – and tourists as the very definition of Orientalization. But tourists that travel to Roma villages and Roma that market gypsy romanticism? What do both sides hope to get out of it? Can a more profound encounter even take place at all under these circumstances, with this clear assignment of roles?
