FLAMES OF GOD
Directed by Meshakai Wolf; Introduced by Darren Aronofsky
Flames of God tells the story of Muzafer Bislim, a prolific poet and songwriter from the Roma-Gypsy enclave of Shuto Orizari (Shutka), Macedonia, who travels to Paris in hopes of selling his life's work—a handwritten 25,000 word dictionary containing some of the oldest and most obscure words in the Romani language.When the authenticity of the words comes into question, Bislim is forced to confront the sobering prospect of returning to his family empty-handed.
Filled with Romani poetry and music, Flames of God is a film about language and identity at the edges of Western civilization, revealing one man's vision of the Romani people—united and literate.
