Hamze Bytyci lives in Berlin and works as a media and theater pedagogue, director and performer. Since 2014, he studies documentary film at the film school filmArche. In his films and his work as chairman of the association RomaTrial, he brings up social and political topics as deportations from Germany or the discrimination of the Roma minority, and supports young underprivileged people, e.g. in the form of the film school “Balkan Onions”.
I have decided to shoot a film about Jožka in the first moment I met him. He manages to combine severe issues of his life and the life of Romani community in the Czech Republic with cheerfulness and light-heartedness in a way, which makes you addicted to him. The new generation of Roma needs a hero like him.
