OUR SCHOOL

  • Runtime: 93 minutes
  • Directed By: Miruna Coca-Cozma and Mona Nicoara
  • Country: USA, Romania, Switzerland
Our School follows three Roma (commonly known as Gypsy) children in a rural Transylvanian village who are among the pioneer participants in an initiative to integrate the ethnically segregated Romanian schools.
