PJFF 21 Trailer of the Day: Gypsy Davy

Gypsy Davy

When an American white boy with Alabama roots becomes a Spanish flamenco guitarist in Andalusian boots, what happens along the way and behind the scenes? GYPSY DAVY wryly tells the story of David Jones, stage name David Serva, through his five women and five children—one of whom is the director. After all, who knows the man who came and saw and conquered, “strumming their pain with his fingers,” better than they? Part duel and part duet—between a guitar-wielding father and a camera-pointing daughter—Jones offers a personal and political portrait of a man, a family, and a generation. As she retraces his path, she pioneers a new one for herself. (96 mins.)

GYPSY DAVY is being presented as part of the 21st Portland Jewish Film Festival on Wednesday, June 19 at 7p.m. in our Whitsell Auditorium (located in the Portland Art Museum).
