János Orsós, a teacher, and a Buddhist, is of Roma descent. Inspired by the history of the Dalits or “untouchables” in India, birthplace of both Roma culture and Buddhism, he founded a school in a small Hungarian village with the goal of enabling teenagers from the poorest Roma ghettos to attend universities. Angry Buddha documents János’ resolute battle against the difficulties he faces over three years, while simultaneously painting affectionate yet honest portraits of the Roma youth who use humor and their own vitality to survive in a world of poverty and prejudice. Full of hope and fury, János fights for a better future for his pupils, the ‘untouchables’ of Europe.
