The feature film Shanghai was made by the creators of the acclaimed Rooster’s Breakfast, which dazzled the country a few years ago. The director Marko Naberšnik decided, as he had done before, to adapt one of the writer Feri Lainšček’s novels. The story of the novel The Untouchables, which was written for ‘Myths,’ a prestigious international literary project, is a story about the Roma population of the Prekmurje region. It centers around a narration by Lutvij Mirga Belmold or Shankaj Gavu, as he has also been known to about four generations of the Balkan Roma. The novel tells the story of Jorga Mirga, who made a living by making grindstones, of Ujaš Mirga, who smuggled illegal goods from Trst, and that of a son, Don Belmold Mirga, who turned to drugs. The story itself serves as an attempt on the part of the reader to understand the situation of the Roma community and their “original sin,” while the second part goes past the myth and delves into trivial and cruel reality of the life the European Roma are forced to lead. The public premiere of this long awaited film will take place in Maribor.
