Movie Info

Pavel Marek prepared this portrait of the outstanding Roma violinist Marek Balog, who is striving to be successful in a white person's world. The young virtuoso happily agreed to the idea, but instead of simply being a subject that was observed he decided to actively participate in directing the film. He therefore tried to not only shoot a self-portrait but to also portray the life of a frequently despised minority, as seen through the eyes of one of its own members. This facilitates a viewpoint that is not distorted by other people's perspectives. The end result is a very original and playful experiment. It produces a stylised documentary, which is a film about the making of a film as well as a discussion on how to properly and innovatively shoot a documentary about another person without diluting the very essence of his being. At the same time Violin Knight portrays an impressive musical landscape, which mixes the wild rhythms of a gypsy band with remarkably moving violin solos. The social aspect of the film is also not neglected. The issue of the Roma's relationship with members of the majority population is depicted via authentic testimony and one person's story.
