Competition (Tekmüvanje) takes us to Pušča, a Roma village in Slovenia, where the village firemen are desperate to join the national corps of firefighters. As they try to integrate into one of Slovenia’s most typical traditions, voluntary firefighting, their own Roma identity is put to the test.
Miha MOHORIČ is a passionate travel writer and film-maker who documents people’s lifestyles and cultures in his films. He focuses on socio-cultural themes, especially those which are hidden or ignored by society.
