Summary

  • America is home to one million Gypsies, or Rom, whose rich culture has long been mysterious to outsiders. Jimmy Marks a flamboyant Romani leader who lives in Spokane, Washington, invites the viewer into this closed world. He leads us through the history of his people through civil rights courts, Las Vegas casinos and beyond. DVD extras include PBS' POV interview with the director, trailers and a soundtrack sample for Gypsy caravan: when the road bends, and a trailer for Searching for the 4th nail.
