Civil Society Pitch: The Invisibles

*Winner of Civil Society Pitch Award 2016

Director: Iulia Stoian

Project partners: Centrul FILIA & Funky Citizens 

Romania has one of the largest numbers of unregistered people in the EU, many of them born and living in marginalized Roma communities. With no access to public education, health services or legal jobs, the unregistered find themselves invisible to the authorities. The film follows the bureaucratic and emotionally complicated journey of Ionela, a Roma mother, who wants to obtain IDs for her daughter. The Invisibles was born during Civil Society Pitch in 2016, where film director Iulia Stoian teamed up with the activists from FILIA and Funky Citizens. This year, at the second edition of the workshop, they will share their experience with the new participants and show work-in-progress material from the film.
