Cigán (2011, 100 min.), dir. Martin Šulík
Martin Šulík is a Slovak film director and screenwriter. Initially and throughout his career Šulík has worked on television and documentaries. His breakout feature film The Garden (Zahrada, 1995) written and produced by Šulík, garnered major international acclaim. Over his career six of Šulík’s films, including Gypsy, have been selected as the Slovakian entry for the Best Foreign Language Film Oscar.

Gypsy is a story of a 14-year-old Roma (aka Gypsy) boy named Adam that is forced into a life of crime by his father-in-law after his own father is mysteriously killed. The story takes place in a poor Roman village in Eastern Slovakia. Gypsy is a portrait of an impoverished Roma settlement, where racial, cultural, and social issues obstruct a normal life for a young boy. He must learn how to overcome these prejudices.

Czech That Film, sponsored by Staropramen, is organized by the Czech Center in collaboration with the Consulates General of the Czech Republic in Chicago and Los Angeles in cooperation with the Gene Siskel Film Center and UCLA Film Television.
