A COW IN HEAVEN (2010)
Video, 28 min.
Directed by Daniel García.
Produced by SurReal.
A documentary about childhood, adoption and migration.
Most of the African children who are given in adoption come from Ethiopia. Zacarías was on the verge of being an adopted child in Europe, but he was not. However, as many others, he knows what growing in a distant place means. In 1983, he was sent with hundreds of Ethiopians to live and study at Isla de la Juventud (Cuba). 22 years later, Zacarías returns to Ethiopia with a video camera on his hand and a strange mixed feeling, something between fear and hope.
