Phral mende – Who We Are

Film and Discussion on Perspectives of Sinti and Roma in Germany

Phral mende – Who We Are is not a film about Sinti* and Roma* but a polyphonic self-portrait. In biographical interviews, personalities such as Anita Awosusi, Fatima Hartmann, and Ilona Lagrene talk to director Tayo Awosusi-Onutor about civil rights engagement, remembrance culture, and everyday racism. Their perspectives and individual experiences give rise to a vivid picture of Sinti* and Roma* in Germany which defies stereotypical views.

Following the film, there will be a panel and an audience discussion with the director and the film’s protagonists – about identity and commitment, home and origins, and how one perceives oneself and is perceived by others. Taking part in the discussion are Tayo Awosusi-Onutor, Anita Awosusi, Ilona Lagrene, and Estera Iordan, moderated by Dr. Jane Weiß (née Schuch).
