Sujeylin had been wanting to get her I.D. card, for the first time in her life. She needs this to register Karla, but also if she wants to find a job in the same place Felix is working. For the film this can be an interesting scene as to the development in her personal life – she wants to exist formally. So yesterday we headed out to achieve this.
Where I.D.s are to be gotten, there is also an instant photo service. It’s these two guys with a small digital camera, who take your picture right there in a little tent and then print it on photographic paper with a small printer they have standing by on a little table. Very ingenious!
Today we are leaving for Chontales, the area she was born. It’s quite a trip and could also be interesting, since her estranged mother was not expecting to see her ever again. Stay tuned.
