Before the Foliage Falls

Zanim Opadną Liście

Directed by Władysław Ślesicki
Poland, 1964
Documentary, Short


A result of long-term observation, this documentary depicting Polish Roma people (or Gypsies, as they were referred to at that time) is also an ethnographic record. Exotic life in the caravan and specific genre scenes are combined with the picture of everyday life.
