“Testament Manouche” (“Gypsy Testament”) is a dive into the world of adolescents and young adults from the gypsy community. In becoming sedentary, abandoning their language, and adopting the customs of a modern urban life, the new connected generation is confronting older generations who do not understand this world in constant mutation. What is the future of these French citizens, of their culture? Will the Gypsies disappear? Testament Manouche brings the history of today’s French Romany to light and helps us better understand this long and painful assimilation process that, little by little, equalizing cultural specificities, subjects minorities to a globalized, uniform model.
