Screening of « Papusza » by Joanna Kos-Krauze& Krzysztof Krauze

Cinema Debate 17h30 - 20h30

This film tells the true story of Papusza, the first female Rom poet to have her works published.

The theme is the position of women in Roma culture. The screening will be preceded by an introduction by Sara Moonen and followed by a conversation with the film’s director, Joanna Kos-Krauze, and leading actress, Jowita Budnik.

This meeting will be hosted by Dragan Ristić, founder of the KAL group and director of the Rom cultural centre in Belgrade.

  True story of Papusza – the first Roma woman who put her poems into writing and published them, and therefore confronted the traditional female image in the gypsy community. 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.
