We´re two filmmakers from Spain (Alberto García Ortiz and Agatha Maciaszek), that have been filming the struggle of 67 Indian illegal immigrants, who after staying more than one year in a detention center in Ceuta, decided to flee to the mountains and build a shanty community there, with the aim of not being deported to their country.
Currently we entered into the process of editing which will hopefully end in October more or less, and then we´ll enter into postproduction phase, hoping to release the film in December and start the festivals round.
As it´s still an independent production, we need to cover its expanses, that are many and urgent, especially the expanses of translation of the rough material and the editing.
That´s why we make this public request to anyone that would like to support the project.
There are many ways of doing it:
-Economic contribution by Paypal (you find it in the right side)
-Sponsorship, especially of companies based in Ceuta or India (both locations of the movie)
-Pre-sales to TV channels or agreements of international distribution
-Any kind of diffusion of the project
-Information about possible grants for independent filmmakers anywhere...etc, etc
This documentary will spread the heartbreaking story of these persons and hopefully to avoid their deportation. All the people collaborating in this project, will be listed in the movie credits.
For any kind of collaboration, please email:
