Graveyard for the Anonymous
Video duration: 04:12
Chemseddine Marzoug, a Tunisian fisherman, a native of Zarzis, fights daily to ensure that the remains of the dead migrants at sea are buried with dignity. He also fights for the survivors, trapped midway between the attractiveness of a Western world, and the misery of their home country, that they flee: to find a roof and a decent life. Flowers and wooden boards numbered, in a rocky landscape. Without a cross or steel, the «Graveyard for the Anonymous» has nothing of an ordinary necropolis, just like the destinies of those who are buried there. “Life rejected them. So, in their death, they must be given a dignified and respectful funeral. That's the least “, insists Chamseddine.
