Still image from Darkness On The Edge Of Town

Part of "Life on the Edge" series. Roma film director Árpád Bogdan took a fateful step, looking for his gypsy roots. After a roller-coaster journey, he finally tracked down his 60-year-old father who was living on the outskirts of a village with 40 dogs and a new young wife. "Which one are you?" asked his father when they met, before recounting the arguments and prison stays that led to the family splitting up and the local authority taking Árpád into care. Twelve months later, Árpád returns to Hungary from Bulgaria where he's studying English. Faced with a recent spate of horrific murders of Roma families in Hungary's rural villages, he sets off on a new journey to meet with a cross-section of Roma people and try to understand what's behind the new wave of anti-Roma sentiment in Hungary today.
