DO MAGIC at Ex Oriente

Peter Drössler and director Vera Lacková have been selected for the Ex Oriente Workshop 2023/24 with Vera’s new documentary project “Do Magic – Mach es magisch”. The workshops, part of the Institute of Documentary Film’s international training and project development programme, will take place in La Rochelle in June, Leipzig in October and Prague in March 2024. In her documentary, Vera Lacková sets out on a very personal quest to unravel a curse that has been weighing on her family. In her search for a “real witch” from her Roma people, she reveals layer after layer of the traumatic past of her people and her family.
