Margarita Jimeno


Immigrants from Eastern Europe have been roughing up New York’s art and music scene for a long time and the gypsy-punk band Gogol Bordello is one of the top initiators. The band unites Sinti and Roma musicians aged 25 to 50 coming from five different countries. Director Margarita Jimeno accompanied the group from 2001 to 2006 – a time in which Gogol Bordello turned from underground phenomenon to a world famous cult band. A Balkan story of a different kind.   USA 2008 Regie: Margarita Jimeno 90 min, digiBeta, Farbe, engl. OF
