The world premiere of Cigán (The Gipsy), a new movie by Slovak filmmaker Martin Šulík, garnered a three-minute standing ovation on Tuesday, July 5, at the International Film Festival in the Czech town of Karlovy Vary.
The house was packed, with audiences even sitting on the stairs, the TASR newswire wrote. The film will now be screened in the Slovak village of Richnava, where it was shot, and, from July 14, will be released in Slovak cinemas.
