A New Crowdfunding Project Puts Us in the Point of View of an African Immigrant on His Journey to the Decadent Paradise of Europe

From Barcelona comes a high-impact short film proposal by the young director Carlos Albero. The project, produced by Mad House, tells the story of Lucky, a young Nigerian immigrant who pays a gang to take him from his country to Europe.

    BARCELONA, SPAIN, March 18, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- The short, which is gathering financial support through crowdfunding, brings the viewer into the story through the eyes of the protagonist. A first-person experience of the hell many immigrants go through after leaving their countries until they arrive in the hypothetical paradise of Europe. It also describes his experiences after arriving at his destination, which is very different from what he thought he would find in Europe.

The proposal is daring in format: a silent short, filmed entirely from the subjective viewpoint, with music connecting the narrative. The idea is to tell the story in a graphically innovative way, distancing it from the documentary tone usually found in this type of story, and showing viewers the brutality of the gangs and the ignorance of the travellers they cheat.

With a team of more than 45 actors, directed by Carlos Albero and coproduced by Mad House Films (Barcelona) and 3 Lights Films (Madrid), the project will be filmed in June and will be shown in festivals starting in September 2014.

Visit the profile of "Paradise" at Indiegogo to contribute, with rewards ranging from a comic of the short to attending the shoot or being a producer of the project.
