Caimo - Bitter Regret. The last Aromanians of Europe
Traditionally nomadic shepherds, Aromanians, or Vlachs, are an ethnic group with a Latin-based language that can be found in different parts of the Southeastern Europe.
Caimo, meaning “bitter regret”, follows one of the few remaining Aromanian families in a village in the Balkans.
Using an observational and poetic style, it depicts the everyday routine, the dysfunctions, the poverty, the music and the ambivalent attachment to the past of a ruptured family that struggles to maintain its identity in a world that has no use for its traditional values.
