Free Screening of Award Winning documentary “Our School”

Test DVD front cover 2

“Part case study on entrenched racism, part heartbreaking human rights story.”- Award winning “Our School” to be shown at free screening in California

On Thursday, September 28, a free screening of award winning documentary “Our School” will be shown at the California Municipal Building, 225 Third Street, California, PA, at 6:00 p.m., with an introduction by Roma filmmaker George Eli of the Romani Media Initiative.

Following the screening, a panel discussion will be held featuring noted Roma scholars including Jud Nirenberg and Christiana Grigore.

The New York Times describes “Our School” – produced and directed by Mona Nicoara and co-produced/co-directed by Miruna Coca-Cozma – as “part case study on entrenched racism, part heartbreaking human rights story.”

This free screening is being held as part of an ongoing effort to bridge the divide between local residents and members of the Roma community who have recently relocated to the California, PA, area. Area officials and members of the community are being invited to attend, as well as the general public. Come help us learn more about our new neighbors and the persecution they’ve fled.

Sponsorship for the event is being provided in part by the Romani Media Initiative, the Law Office of Lisa J. Buday, Webchyk Design Studio, and Pennsylvania Bridges. We are also partnering with local officials and churches to help make this event a success. Additional sponsors are both welcome and needed.

Additionally, because there are significant expenses associated with bringing this great event to California, we’ve set up a Go Fund Me page to try and raise extra funds:
