One thousand years ago they began to travel. Roaming the earth in search of a home. So begins an incredible story; of survival against the odds, of being hunted to the brink of extinction and of enduring the greatest horrors known to man.

From the ancient fields of India to a scrap of land on the edge of civilisation, King of the Gypsies lifts the latch on a bold, brash and vibrant world. A world that clings to life with a passionate embrace. A world that, despite everything, is still fighting to survive

“A tight and passionate production… This is a remarkable achievement”***** Edinburgh
