Pongo Calling

Tomáš Kratochvíl

Czech Republic, Slovakia, UK - 2023 - 78’ - Sheffield DocFest 2022

Pongo is the name of a person who moved from the Czech Republic to Great Britain to start a new life. He is constantly working and led by his example, so are his children. Yet, Pongo keeps on pondering upon the question: “Why couldn’t we achieve all this back home, in the Czech Republic?” That’s how he starts a wave of Roma-related activist events in the Czech Republic and his son, Marek Pongo, continues his father’s efforts. 

Marek will be present at the discussion in an attempt to address the questions raised in the film, together with Deyan Kolev, representative on behalf of Amalipe Center for Interethnic Dialogue and Tolerance.

The Dialogues are organised by the Embassy of the Czech Republic and the Czech Center in Sofia,  in cooperation with the Vaclav Havel Library in Prague.

24.09, 15:00 - 18:00, CZECH CENTER
