Artist Pepe Ozan Film Festival Screening

Pepe Ozan is visiting Hollywood this weekend where he will have a film festival screening of his documentary movie about the nomadic gypsies of India. Pepe and partner Melitta lived amongst five gypsy families for almost one year and traveled with them all over the Indian continent, documenting their extraordinary lives in order to make this exceptional film.

Perhaps best known for his amazing art works at Burning Man, where he is one of the longest lasting artists to grace the Playa (beginning in 1991), then creating the Burning Man Opera in 1996, of which Twan served as co-producer (1998-2002), and finally moving into other directions artistically, which is how he began making documentaries in and about some interesting facets of eastern Indian life.

The screening will begin at 2:00 in the afternoon. A great way to spend a bit of time!

Jaisalmer Ayo! has been invited to screen at the National Geographic Film Festival which is taking place at the beautiful Egyptian Theatre which is located at:

6712 Hollywood Boulevard,
between Las Palmas and McCadden,
just east of Highland Avenue
in Hollywood.
Selma Avenue is just south of the theatre.

Please consider stopping by and sharing some love with Pepe. He’d be delighted to meet you and he’s a joy to know. And the movie is well worth watching, particularly if you have an interest in all things eastern Indian.

Here are a few photos of Pepe’s Playa creations:
