The first film diaries were in Dutch, but from now on I'll write them in English. We have many friends and relatives who can't follow us because they can't read Dutch.
The 4th shooting day of Dance Iranian Style was last night. The crew gathered at our office at 19.30 and after a very nice meal (Food Iranian Style!), they disappeared into the night.
It was a cold night and Roya was cold. After three days of walking around and sleeping in streets, she was eager to find a warm shelter. But finding a warm shelter isn't easy at all, specially when you don't know anybody and have no ID and money to go to a hotel.
The crew waited along with her, looked for a place along with her and when she finally found one, they again waited as long as it took to make sure it was safe.
At 4 o'clock in the morning when the crew was sure that Roya could spend the night at a safe place, they left her and went home. Everybody was really exhausted. Waiting make you more tired than anything else in the world.
The crew waited long but they knew they can go home any time, but Roya and other undocumented refugees are waiting without any hope. Don't forget them! They do deserve a warm home too!
