Written by Ádám Császi and Balázs Lengyel (Lajko: Gypsy in Space [+leggi anche:

), the script centres on a white director working with a troupe of Romas with severely underprivileged backgrounds. The troupe members are former heroin addicts, ex-homeless people, juvenile delinquents, victims of rape and abuse. The play they make together, entitled Gypsy Hungarian, presents with genuine sincerity the unvarnished truth of their real experiences — in other words, the play capitalises on their misery. Following one of their performances, the actors get tired of being taken advantage of and leave the troupe. They set out on an inner and outer journey into the unknown depths of their Roma consciousness but by doing so, they also present and reinforce a plethora of racist stereotypes. The only conclusion they arrive at is that the mutual enmity between minorities and the majority is inescapable, intolerable and inextricable. The troupe finally reunites out of practical reasons: the director and the play are invited to Berlin’s most prominent theatre and the prestigious festival promises to bring them all plenty of money and success…

. It is also worth noting that the film’s original title (Ando Drom) is a reference to Jack Kerouac’s On the Road, in the sense that it is a portrait of a lost generation.

Produced by István Bodzsár for Uniofilm Entertainment, Three Thousand Numbered Pieces benefits from support from the National Film Institute Hungary. Filming will take place until 15 October in the Hungarian capital at the New York Boscolo Hotel, the Parisi Court Hotel and at the Budapest Operett Theatre, but also in Ózd (at Hétes telep) with Balázs István Balázs handling the cinematography (winner of the IMAGO 2020 award). Distribution in Hungarian cinemas will be handled by Mozgó Mozi and international sales by NFI World Sales.
