Original version with English subtitles

THE DEATHLESS WOMAN is a ghost story for the 21st Century. This urgent and magical hybrid documentary fluidly interweaves fantastical re-imaginings of buried secrets with a ghostly narration and direct to camera testimonies from survivors and witnesses of historic and contemporary crimes against the Roma in Poland and Hungary.


A Roma woman buried alive in a forest in Poland during WWII returns to haunt us, uncovering a history of atrocities against the Roma in Europe. She is the Deathless Woman. Motivated by rage, she rises from her grave to draw our attention to the persecution of the Roma people from the 1940s to the neo-Nazi hate crimes of the present day.
