Hungary Where the Water Is Deep
The lot of the Hungarian Gypsy is not a romantic one. The mistrust and anger between them and their neighbors stains the beautiful, pastoral landscape of the Putza region. In this emotional and stunningly photographed film, the fiery widow of a murdered Gypsy seeks information about his killing, speaking with fortune tellers and police, meeting with witnesses and even challenging the presumed assassins. Her rage boils as the trail leads nowhere and her concerns are ignored.
Enemy Mine, a six-part series, gives voice to ordinary individuals whose lives bear witness to the contemporary consequences of age-old tensions. These narratives may seem like fictional constructs, but they are true, and they are enacted by the real peolpe involved, not by actors.
