Joanna Kos-Krauze & Krzysztof Krauze

Fiction - 125' - Poland - 2013

This film is based on the true story of the Roma poet Bronislawa Wajs (1908--1987). The film follows Papusza's life from birth to old age: arranged marriage as a small girl, her life in a gypsy tabor before, during and after second world war, then forced settlement in communist Poland and urban life in poverty. Her meeting with the Polish poet Jerzy Ficowski, who discovered her great talent for poetry and published her works led to a tragic paradox: a famous poet was living in poverty, rejected by the Roma community for betraying their secrets.
