The Way Out

The locally and internationally acclaimed picture Cesta Ven from director Petr Václav (Marian, Paralelní světy) tells the story of a young Roma mother, who refuses to accept her unhappy social status and tries to fight for a better life for herself and her daughter Sára. The film successfully avoids pathos which is often typical for such a topic and portrays the woman’s life from an honest and naturalistic point of view. The director casted non-actors and shot in an authentic environment, mainly in the Ostrava region.
