A biographical tale chronicling the life of Poland’s most well known poetess. Bronisława Wajs (Jowita Budnik), or Papusza as she is more commonly known, was an illiterate Polish-Romani in the early 1900’s, who traded chickens in exchange for reading lessons. At the tender age of 15 she was married off to an older man, and in her misery began writing and singing poetry. She was discovered one day by poet, Jerzy Ficowski (Antoni Pawlicki) who published her work and, in doing so, changed the course of her life forever.
Screening will be introduced by Joanna Kos-Krauze.
