Bye Bye Children's Home

Sbohem děcáku

Directing: Hana Ludvíková Muchová


The documentary uses a time-lapse method to follow the stories of four mainly Roma youth who had lived in a children’s home for most of their lives and had to leave it after reaching the age of eighteen. They have no home, no family, and no idea where to stay and how to make money for living. Lukáš wants to become a hip-hop star, Simona plans a sex change surgery; Jarda wishes to have a big family. The documentary captures the reality of institutional child care in the Czech Republic, which belongs to countries with the highest number of children placed in institutional care in Europe; it also covers the topic of racism and Roma identity, as well as identity in general.
