A început ploaia is the first feature documentary about forced evictions in Bucharest, Romania. The film portraits the story of the Vulturilor 50 community (100 individuals), whom dwelt on the street from September 2014 to June 2016 in order to protest against the forced eviction from their home and to fight for their right to social housing. The vicissitudes of this community are interpolated with a number of interviews with activists, scholars and politicians, composing a picture that speaks of racial discrimination, homelessness, evictions, but also of grassroots practices of resistance and social change. This work is a testament to the everyday revolution of Roma people fighting forced evictions from the centre of Bucharest, an endeavour made of fragile dwellings, provisional makeshifts and tenuous – but fierce – occupancy of public space. Written and direct by Michele Lancione Produced by A Community Productions Year of release: 2017 Length: 71 minutes Follow @acommprod and join the conversation #ainceputploaia
