Tony Gatlif

Born in 1948 in Algeria, Tony Gatlif is of both Algerian and Gypsy descent. It is in his dual origins that he has found the inspiration for most of his films. He shot his first film, La Tête en ruines in 1975. He directed Les Princes (1983), a feature film about a group of Gypsies settled in a Parisian suburb. He spent 1992-1993 shooting Safe Journey which was awarded numerous prizes. In 1998, he finished his trilogy about Gypsy life with The Crazy Stranger, which won many awards. His films are full of music, dance and mostly gypsies.
