Time of the Gypsies (Serbian: Дом за вешање, Dom za vešanje, literally "Home for Hanging") is a 1988 film by Bosnian Serb director Emir Kusturica. Filmed in Romani, Time of the Gypsies tells the story of a young Romani man with magical powers who is tricked into engaging in petty crime. It is widely considered to be one of Kusturica's best films.

The film revolves around Perhan, a Gypsy teenager with telekinetic powers and his passage from boy to man that starts in a little village in Yugoslavia and that ends in the criminal underworld of Milan.

The movie's soundtrack was composed by Goran Bregović.
