“THE SHAPE OF A HEART – A Gypsy Love Story” is a long form vérité documentary chronicling Micheal Butch’s struggle with the changes taking place within himself and his community. Filmed over three years the documentary is an intensely intimate portrait of a family caught up in the shifting tides of desires and fears within the Romani community of Toronto. The documentary is the result of many years of ethnographic fieldwork among the Rom Kalderas of Paris, Toronto and New York.
