Spanish filmmaker to shoot road movie in India

By Cineuropa • Published on July 14, 2012

Spanish documentary filmmaker Chema Rodríguez will shoot parts of his first feature film in India in October. The project is titled Night is Falling in India. It is a road movie about a journey from Spain to the river Ganges.

The film is currently being shot in Romania and will then move to Turkey and Sevilla until the end of July. The second half of filming is scheduled for October in India and Almería.

Rodríguez has made over 50 documentaries for television and three for the cinema.

The film, based on the real story told in “Night is falling in Katmandu” written by Rodríguez in 2003, tells the story of Ricardo (Juan Diego), who back in the day used to take hippies to India in his van. But he has spent the last ten years of his life in a wheelchair because of a terminal illness that has reached its final phase. His final wish is to die on the shores of the Ganges, so he embarks on this final journey to the river, accompanied by Dana (Clara Voda), his Romanian assistant.

The film’s production team is as international as its storyline, with participation from Spanish companies Producciones sin un Duro and Jaleo Films, Romanian company Strada Film, and Swedish company ATMO. It has been supported by institutions in the co-producing countries, like Spain’s ICAA, Romania’s National Film Centre, and Sweden’s Film i Väst, as well as the Council of Europe’s co-production fund, Eurimages.
