Benjamin
by Matija VUKŠIĆ

Croatia – 2009 – 25’
Benjamin je priča o sedamnaestogodišnjem Romu u potrazi za svojim identitetom. Državni prvak u geografiji nije zadovoljan životom u romskom okruženju, pa pokušava biti prihvaćen od ne romske populacije. Mnogi Romi u njegovom okruženju su ljubomorni na Benjamina jer zbog njegovih uspeha njegova porodica ima struju i vodu. Benjaminovi roditelji, Jehovini svedoci često tvrde kako je razlog njegovog uspeha upravo vera, sa čime se on ne slaže, kao i sa mnogim drugim stvarima.
