World’s First Film about the Roma Holocaust in the Romani Language Tours the UK

Written, Produced, Directed by Roz Mortimer

UK wide Tour: 21 May to 3 July 

Writer, director Roz Mortimer’s urgent and magical hybrid documentary The Deathless Woman — a response to the virtual erasure of the history of Roma from our cultural memory of the Holocaust —  will tour to seven UK cities and towns from May to July, including Glasgow, Bolton, Erith, Manchester, Chester, Sheffield and Leeds.

A ghost story for the 21st Century, Roz Mortimer’s debut feature fluidly interweaves theatrical re-imaginings of buried secrets with a ghostly narration in the Romani language, and direct to camera testimony from survivors and witnesses of historic and contemporary crimes against the Roma in Poland and Hungary.
