Buzescu, Romania

A portrait of husband and wife, Cassi (13 years old) and Sami (15 years old). Cassi lives with Sami's family and does a lot of the house chores and cooks for the family. Sami still goes to school and wishes to continue but his parents want him to finish the year and start working in the cazan business like his dad. Buzescu is known for it's ultra-wealthy Roma and their bizarre mansions that line the main street. The Roma of Buzescu are part of the Kalderash clan and are known for being coppersmiths and dealing with metal scraps. After the fall of the communist regime in the late 80's, they stripped old factories of their metals and some made a small fortune re-selling them. They are also known for making cazane, copper stills that produce alcohol such as palinka, a plum brandy.
