The Shutka Book of Records

At Rooftop Films, we like movies that show us "where you live and how you live." We look for films that explore hidden communities and introduce us to uncommon people. We seek out stories that are funny, poignant, eye-opening, jaw-dropping, and unique. We want the best films out there.

In Shutka, Macedonia—the unofficial, self-governing, world capital of the Roma people—everyone is a champion of something. The town is one of the poorest places in all of Europe, but the people have learned to celebrate life with competitive vigor. To do the town justice, or possibly to counterbalance what Shutka lacks, its inhabitants constantly compete for the champion title in every discipline imaginable. Who is the best at protecting the community from evil spirits, who the greatest lounge singer of all? Come meet the lamb champion for the last 35 years, the champions in boxing, fashion, sex. And find out who will win this year's obscure Turkish music cassette competition.
