(2014 - 2015) "Friends" are the inhabitants of a Roma ghetto called Chanov, district Most in Czech Republic. The settlement after getting a ghetto is known for high rate of criminality, unemployment, drug addiction and prostitution, what is often attributed to nonadaptability of Romas to live so called "normal life". The place is stigmatized by a social rejection and exclusion from the side of the social majority. This short documentary portrait serie shows five meth addict persons as I have subjectively seen them and met them on my days spent in the ghetto. Fragile and broken. Like the place they live in.
