▪ Submission to Cinema Out of Your Backpack
▪ STORY PITCH
Mansab Bibi sleeps under the stars in order to get a place in the line when the aid workers arrive. But there are not emergency bags for everyone. Not for a fraction of the families. The aid workers arrive, take some snapshots of the delivery, and vanish. Maybe they will come back, maybe tomorrow.
Proud farmers have become desperate beggars. Some faint, some get beaten, some swim to get to the other side of the sandbank. They try to survive, also tomorrow. The UN secretary general Ban Ki-moon talked about a slow-motion tsunami when flying helicopter over the flooded areas. He promised massive aid.
The one-day-old baby, listens to the fan, or is it the helicopter of the UN-boss? What will he be waiting for, tomorrow?
This is a creative would-be-project about the consequences of waiting. And not forgetting.
Just a small reminder, now when other areas get affected too. All the best. /Viktor
