I am most definitely a "gadje" but I have had a profound interest in the Romani culture most of my life, and have spent a lot of my adult life researching, writing and rewriting a screenplay that features a young Roma King as the protagonist. I have finally finished it, and was wondering if Mr. Gatlif would be interested in reading it. It is called "Band of Gold ... a Renaissance Fairytale" and is professionally done. Can anyone give me his contact information
