Year

Duration
99’
Director
Aaron Yeger

A People Uncounted tells the true story of the Roma, commonly referred to as Gypsies – a people who have been both romanticized and vilified in popular culture and who have endured centuries of intolerance and persecution in Europe, including an estimated 500,000 who were murdered in the Holocaust. A People Uncounted documents their colorful but often difficult lives, including how their present state has been shaped by the tragedies of the past. Filmed in 11 countries and featuring dozens of Roma – including Holocaust survivors, historians, activists and musicians – A People Uncounted brings the Romani history to life through the rich interplay of their poetry, music, and compelling firsthand accounts. As ethnic intolerance flares up across Europe, A People Uncounted sheds light on this unique culture while presenting the Roma tale as emblematic of the world's legacy of racism and genocide.
