Still image from the film Papusza
The biopic of Polish-Romani poet Bronisława Wajs, known as “Papusza,” unfolds non-chronologically against the backdrop of World War II and the forced settlement of Roma nomads by the Communist authorities. Forced into marriage by her father, Papusza finds solace in her singing and writing. A visual poem of a gifted woman in a patriarchal society, the film guides viewers through the mechanisms of othering and stigmatization. In Polish and Romani with English subtitles.
