GALA, 21. November 2022.JPG

Gala Magazine article translation to English:


The feature film was shot in India and England and was funded 100% through donations and foundation grants. All proceeds from the film will be donated to selected organisations through the Zariya Foundation, which works to provide education and healthcare for the sick, disabled and abandoned children living in poverty. The Swiss actress Jacqueline Fritschi-Cornaz travelled to India twelve years ago with the aim of Bollywood studios. She was confronted with the misery of many children and the images never left her. Teresa and Kavita: two women's lives, passionately and uncompromisingly interwoven in two parallel stories. Both women realise their vocation despite great doubts. This interwoven story shows Mother Teresa, the woman behind the myth, in a new dimension. Her loss of faith inspires Kavita, a young Englishwoman with Indian roots, to discover real love and empathy in today's Calcutta.
