When the Road Bends... Tales of a Gypsy Caravan
(USA/Great Britain/Netherlands, 2006, 111 minutes)
A record of the 2003 Gypsy Caravan tour, where five Rom ensembles from India, Spain, Romania and Macedonia traveled the US presenting their music to American audiences. Amiable documentary that is handsomely made but of little interest for non-music fans.
