Pentacostal Romas

Bystrzyca Kłodzka, Poland. 2009.

“We are facing harrasments from two sides. One, because we are Gypsy, two, because we are Pentecostal, which is believed to be a sect” – says Andrzej Walawski, pastor of congregation of Bystrzyca. “But more and more community members convert”.

I accompanied the group in their daily life for several months until a young couple’s wedding.

The video cameraman at the wedding said “I was at a couple of weddings of white folks, where there was no alcohol. After few hours of heavy atmosphere the parties died. And here? I’ve never seen a party like this!”
