Faith and Branco

IFI & Tradfest present Faith and Branco

This intimate documentary follows the cross-cultural relationship between Faith Elliot and Branko Ristic over seven years. Accordion-player Faith Elliot travels from England to Serbia to learn gypsy accordion. She meets Roma violinist Branko Ristic and, despite language and cultural barriers, they fall in love and decide to marry. They move from Serbia to the UK and although they perform together with enormous verve and talent, their differences become more pronounced and their marriage falls under threat. Irish filmmaker Catherine Harte creates a sensitive portrait of a difficult relationship against a lively backdrop of traditional Roma folk music.

Screening will be followed with Q&A with director Catherine Harte
