La Alfombra Roja

158 million people live in Indian slums under very extreme insalubrity. Millions of children play sourronded by rubish, cows, rats and excrements. Garib Nagar slum, in Bandra district (Bombay, India) is Rubina´s home, a 12-year old girl who aims to become an actress and change the slum into a more clean and habitable place.

Film notes

“The Red Carpet” is an original idea of Manuel Fernández and Iosu López.
A documentary short flm flmed during four days in Garib Nagar slum in Bandra district, one of the poorest areas of Bombay (India).
Produced by the authors, the shooting took place in the begining of November during Diwali hindi festival under a 113º F sweltering sun. It was a very rewarding experience but also a quite dangerous situation due to the slum lords’ threats. Rubina Ali was chosen amongst thousands of children to be one of the main characters of “Slumdog Millionaire”.
Now she is 14-year old. After the short success of Rubina as a main character in Danny Boyle´s flm, Rubina attends the school everyday and still dreams to become an actress.
Rubina´s life is similar to millions of children who, despite the extreme situation of their lifes, live happy and with a permanent smile.
