Stacey Dooley: Gypsy Kids in Crisis
Caught between anti-gypsy hostility, demands of child protection services, and growing up in struggling families, Stacey explores if there’s any hope for Hungary’s Roma gypsy kids in care.
Billy was still in primary school when he attended Pride dressed as Lady Gaga.
Filmed over 7 years, there are many changes and milestones captured in this film, featuring video diaries from Billy as he shares intimate details with us including his struggle with self-harming.
With tensions in the family, his mum’s health scare, a divorce and an estranged father, we see how those major changes shape Billy as he grows up on camera and tells the story in his own voice.
The result is an extraordinary longitudinal documentary about childhood, adolescence, sexuality and family.
