When the Road Bends… Tales of a Gypsy Caravan

USA 2006 110min 35mm color feature Documentary
Review

The gypsies are a minority people who originated in India, spreading to various nations in Western Europe while retaining their own culture. Over the past centuries, not once have the gypsies harmed anyone, participated in wars, or conquered another nation. Despite this fact, they have been held in contempt as witches or friends of Satan, forcing them to struggle to retain their culture. Director Jasmine Dellal’s documentary/road movie When the Road Bends Tales of a Gypsy Caravan follows five gypsy bands from Macedonia, Romania, India, and Spain on a 6-week tour of musical performances throughout America. Early in the tour, the gypsies communicate with each other awkwardly in Romani, the gypsy language. However, as the tour progresses they come to share music, dance, and also food. Dellal does not merely film the tour, but reveals what lies at the core of the lives and grief of the gypsies, while focusing on their music for marriages and funerals - their ‘cries to the world.’ The interview with Johnny Depp on gypsies is an attractive addition.
