The film invites to watch and listen to the music of Istanbul.
Romanistanbul provides an insider view onto the current music scene of the megacity on the Bosporus with the example of a number of musicians who fuse traditional turkish music with current tunes, and who are member of the Roma minority in Istanbul: Ismail Tunçbilek, Orhan Sallžel, Göksun Çavdar, Hüsnü Senlendirici, Aytaç Dogan, Hasan Gözetlik, Mustafa Uysal (Kasžk Mustafa), Cüneyt Sepetçi and Sercan Çalanlž (Arap). At the same time a wonderful music film that allows the music to tell its own story, the film also gives the musicians a voice to tell their story and their engagement with music. Their commitment to music, to the tunes of Istanbul is also connected with their identity and the struggle of the Roma to be accepted as a part of the contemporary society. The film thus also mirrors the rapid changes, and current movements of this city between the promises of a global city, an expanding music scene and different cultural identities.
The director will be present for Q&A.
