Czech Republic 2015
Original version with English subtitles
The “Květušín Experiment” is an attempt to show that Romani people can be educated as well as anyone, provided they are kept in an environment secluded from their family and culture. Ten-year-old Karolína Miesbauerová investigates the history of Květušín, the town in which her grandmother was schooled, and explores the awful moral complexities of forced assimilation in the name of equality.
