    • Synopsis
    • CARMEN MEETS BORAT is a film about a small cog in a big wheel. A gypsy village is suddenly confronted with a massive dilemma after its inhabitants are portrayed as the backward people from Kazhakstan in the film BORAT. Carmen sees how the village, and the people around her, change irrevocably - and knows her future is set to alter dramatically as well. A hilarious film with very serious undertones.
