  [Screening @ Tiburon Film Society]

Narrated by three-time Academy Award nominee Ethan Hawke, Welcome Nowhere tells the true story of one community of Roma people (commonly known as Gypsies) in Sofia, Bulgaria, who live in old train boxcars after being forcibly evicted from their homes. Without bathrooms or proper sanitation for more than 200 people, they hold on to hope that the government will soon follow through on its promise of better housing. Yet year after year, their living conditions only get worse, and the community is struggling to survive with what little they have.

Welcome Nowhere documents their fight for new homes, better opportunities for their children, and ultimately, their place in the world. Featuring interviews with some of Europe’s leading Roma Rights experts (including Dr. Ilona Tomova, author Georgi Parushev, and Former President of Bulgaria, Dr. Zhelyu Zhelev), Welcome Nowhere paints a detailed picture of one of Europe’s most controversial issues.
