1. Homo Ludens - Diary of a theatre project

    62 minute long documentary film in connection with Krétakör's french show, called Noéplanéte.

    While making preparations for a film and theatre production about French immigrants in the National Theatre de Chaillot of Paris, Árpád Schilling encounters difficulties. He chooses two Romanian gypsy siblings to be main characters, but they don't get the permission to participate in the shooting, however, they have been living in France for many years. Therefore, at the last moment the director rewrites the script, and asks someone who he knows from a previous project, a Hungarian gypsy "Marci" Andor Balázs to take on the role of the children. He has to play a role in the movie part and play himself on stage. Because of the changes the director has made, the production is in late. While Schilling is trying to manage to get it ready on time, Marci begins to doubt about his decision of participating in the show. His biggest fear is that on one hand he unintentionally becomes a representative of others by telling his own story on stage, while on the other hand he needs to give an account of something he is only about to discover, what it means to be a gypsy in Hungary today.
