The documentary that bears the lurid title 'Gypsy Child Thieves' -- originally commissioned by the BBC -- was written and directed by Liviu Tipurita, and released in 2009.
From its title you would think it was a piece of extreme right, racist propaganda.
The filmmaker did not have racist intentions, however.
Tipurita insists he intended to give a fair account of the lives of Romanian Roma (or Gypsy) children who are exploited as thieves and beggars in such cities as Milan and Madrid.
In his mind, the writer-director cared about these children, even as he showed them harassing people at bank machines and lifting wallets from the pockets of commuters and tourists.
