Cinema release "The Forest is Like the Mountains"

On May 7 arsenal distribution is releasing PĂDUREA E CA MUNTELE, VEZI? (THE FOREST IS LIKE THE MOUNTAINS) by Christiane Schmidt and Didier Guillain. The film which premiered in last year's Forum programme and was screened and awarded at many international film festivals since, portrays a Roma village in the Carpathian Mountains, where the inhabitants live off the land, making use of all the riches it has to offer. A sensitive observation of life on the economic sidelines, where a strong sense of community is what keeps things together.

Christiane Schmidt will present and discuss the film at fsk Kino Berlin on Saturday May 9.
