MELHOR FILME TRAVESSIAS 2020

Mensagem do Júri
Um trabalho abissal e persistente, com um dispositivo de realização que procura os seus personagens sem saber se os irá encontrar. Um filme repleto de intervenientes que documentam, mapeiam, uma história arrancada do fundo do mar. A força para resistir surge de múltiplos e, por vezes, inesperados lugares. Um processo de reconstrução de uma humanidade quase perdida, quer dos que naufragaram numa morte incógnita, quer dos que, do lado de cá, da Europa, assistem. Sabe-se muito pouco do outro lado, sabe-se muito pouco dos dois lados. Uma travessia intelectual e emocional única.

Mais de 30 mil migrantes perderam a vida desde o ano 2000 a tentar chegar à Europa. A maioria morreu nas águas do Mar Mediterrâneo, o percurso mais mortífero do globo para migrantes. Por identificar, morrem duas vezes, perdidos no anonimato das massas. Uma equipa de patologistas forenses luta para restaurar a preciosa identidade. Devolvendo aos mortos a sua dignidade, eles certificam a nossa. Since 2000, over 30,000 migrants have lost their lives trying to reach Europe. The majority of them have died in the waters of the Mediterranean Sea, the deadliest route for migrants on the globe. Unidentified, they die twice, lost in the anonymity of the mass. A team of forensic pathologists fights to restore the right to personal identity. By giving the dead their dignity back, they vouch for ours.

Nota da Realizadora
The Mediterranean is the deadliest route for migrants on the globe. Since the year 2000, according to the International Organization for Migrations, over 30,000 migrants have lost their lives trying to reach Europe. The majority of them died in the deep blue waters of the Mediterranean. The real extent of the drama defies any census. How many have disappeared at sea or in the desert without anyone knowing about it? Incomplete in essence, these figures are especially powerless in recounting the individuality of the journey, as well as the pain and suffering. Migrants are lost in the anonymity of the mass. Dissolved. Each massive shipwreck creates media and political outrage. Then, very quickly, the victims are forgotten. It is not uncommon to find bodies buried hastily in mass graves, without any identification process. In this darkness, we have met stubborn and persistent sources of light. For years, some forensic pathologists have been trying to give back a name, a memory to these forgotten souls. We have been given exclusive access to their unprecedented identification work. We have then weave this fragile thread linking the families in search of answers. Building on successful identification, we followed the encounters between the forensic pathologists’ search and that of the families. This is one of the acmes of the film. The moment when the invisible face of the deceased appears on the faces of their loved ones, the moment when the process takes on its full meaning. From nothingness to the living, the film follows their struggle – scientific, moral and political. It’s a fight. Trying, exalting, sometimes even joyful. One common misperception about forensic pathologists is that they only care about death. Everything we’ve seen during nearly two years of research is the opposite. They work for the living, for the families left behind each human life. Stuck in the limbo of “ambiguous loss”, these people know that something happened. And, despite the diversity of their spiritual beliefs, they’re all the same in one aspect: they can’t mourn properly. Nor can they pursue their lives. And this is a film about life. Fragile. Damaged. Stubborn. Life.
We’re actively raising funds for a very important project : a mobile cinema with the families and friends of missing migrants, in Senegal, Mali and Mauritania.
