Cobra Gypsies (2015)

Chronicling the incredible life of Indian gypsies in the deserts of India’s Rajasthan province.


Our weekly documentary film curated by our editorial team at 21WIRE.

This is a stunning documentary piece by independent filmmaker Raphael Treza, chronicling his adventure with the Indian gypsies in the deserts of India’s northwestern Rajasthan province. Along with stunning visuals and a very personal feel to the story and its characters, this production also boasts a unique soundtrack which captures the spirit and colour of this legendary tribe of nomadic people – who are the original gypsies. The film maker was one of the first-ever outsiders to document this amazing culture – making this a documentary adventure like no other.
