2.An additional light. Shades of sociology
A foray into the realities of Roma Gypsies in Romania, their history, their contribution has European culture, their customs and their hopes in the future
The contribution of phd . Vasile Burtea, universities in Bucharest, in sociological research of the minority Rome (Gypsy) is remarkable.
Sociologist, economist, university he became noted for his ability to give nuance to a difficult search for social assistance to disadvantaged groups or involves a high degree of discrimination
The protagonist of this documentary, former Deputy Ombudsman for a period, in Romania, now throws additional light on controversial issues and supports a disturbing argument about dignity to assume ethnicity. Beyond the university course, beyond his professional skills and the image created by the media, what are we teaching the protagonist of this film?
That human dignity is a value in itself. Need to explain and assert ethnicity and by doing that, we do not refuse integration! Instead, it is part of a larger community. That diversity is always rewarding and it can give different values to each people. A moving speech to the integration of Roma Gypsies and compelling examples of their major contribution to the spiritual richness of the Romanian people.

1.Shiites and Sunnites, “enemies brothers“ ?
(broadcast TV ,25 min)
In a world with so many wars, in a world of the global confrontation we can say that the misunderstandings, the opposition, the historic quarrel that we, the European we perceiveit, between the Shiites and the Sunnites,became a leitmotiv.
The split of the Shiism and the Sunnisme goes back upin first timeof the Islam. It is an evidence that the Muslims, Sunni or Shiite believers, make together the pilgrimage in Mecca; that supports rather the Muslim idea of the unity. Thus the “quarrel” between the Shiites and Sunnites is on a theoretical territory, the ” territory doctrinaire ” and not on a territory of the war:Well then where from appears this idea of ” religious war ” about which everybody speaks about it?
It is necessary to deepencertain nuances and differences doctrinaires between two main currents of the Islam.
For the world of the faith it is important to stress that the Islam it is the religion which puts in the honor the intimate faith and the personal involvementby supporting the faith, the love of the divine and the self-control.
