Without a Chance

This documentary, produced by the Hungarian Civil Liberties Union, a human rights watchdog NGO in Budapest, introduces to the viewer the most common rights violations that Roma people suffer in Hungary.

Through this footage, filmed over three years in the northeastern part of Hungary by the HCLU, we get to know how discrimination is present in all aspects of life of Roma people, including disadvantages in the labour market, discrimination by municipalities, by the police and by the judicial system. We witness how hate crime against Roma is tolerated, and how the law that was originally introduced to protect minorities is in reality used against them. Finally, we show how the segregation of Roma children in the Hungarian school system ensures that Roma people live with us "Without a Chance."
