WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
In I Declare at My Own Risk Alina Serban attempts an unusual and brave thing. Consciously accepting her Roma heritage, she talks with brutal honesty about her most personal experiences and life wisdom, about her grievances, about being humiliated, excluded, not knowing where she belongs - all the while avoiding sentimentality. She shares diary entries and photos with the audience, while calling up various episodes of her life from the time she was ten years old when her family was evicted from their home and forced to move to relatives in a "gypsy ghetto" in Bucharest.
