Description

Bronislawa Wajs, also known as Papusza, was the first Roma woman to put her poems into writing and publish them, confronting the traditional female image in the gypsy community. Joanna Kos-Krauze and Krzysztof Krauzefollows’ beautifully shot biopic follows Papusza’s life from birth to old age. Her meeting with the Polish poet Jerzy Ficowski, who discovered her great talent for poetry and revealed her work to the world, led to a tragic paradox in which her own community rejected her for betraying their secrets.
