Narrated by acclaimed actor Michael Madsen and spanning the deserts of Rajasthan to the ghettos of Bucharest, Run Raven Run explores the resounding pain and pleasure that emanates from the unvanquished soul of Gypsy music. Despite a historical legacy that dealt the dark cards of poverty, ostracism, and genocide, music has always been the winning hand for Gypsy survival. Today, long-lived Roma musical traditions stand at a vital crossroads. The elders are dying, electronic instruments are transforming the genre, and the youth have embraced the medium of hip-hop to tell their unique stories. This is a classic saga of survival and renewal.
