During my trip to Kolkata, India I could only think of one word: Roller Coaster.
This film Rollercoaster is the visualization of my feelings, fears and emotions. And therefor probably not the same feelings other people will have while visiting this country.
I’m a Cuban filmmaker born in Havana, living in Holland. During my childhood in the streets of Havana I’ve seen many things. But compared to 1 week India I realized that my life in the streets in Havana weren’t that bad after all.
The one thing that stays on my mind was a little baby sleeping alone in the streets, which made me think of my own daughter who grows up protected and loved.
The energy of this country, the spirituality of the people and the spark in their eyes makes this the most special trip I made in my whole life.
Thank you India for the opportunity to allowing me to film you with all of your beautiful people.
Warm and special thanks to 1000childrens.org for giving me this opportunity which will stay with me for a lifetime.
Please visit their website and help them help the street children of Kolkata.
