Ran across this... cool.


Check out this beautiful documentary entitled COBRA GYPSIES directed by Raphael Treza. Up until watching this film, I never knew that the Romani still existed in India. This film is created in a way that the subjects do not seem to be exploited for a story, but are actually given a chance to have their voices heard…Enough of me talking, peep the COBRA GYPSIESdocumentary below.

All photos by Raphael Treza

Oh man I was this close to posting something about this but you honestly did a better job at it then I could.
This's my favorite thing to watch. The tribe with the kids that lost the camels were bamf. And when they were coming home with the camels finally and the mom was yelling at them and then she started yelling at the journalists too! So friggin funny!
