Pure Unknown

Pure Unknown (Mattia Colombo, Valentina Cicogna)

The act of burial is a primal human ritual that delimits life from death. But what happens to the corpses of migrant persons drowned at sea, those “pure unknown” who have been denied the possibility of a better life? No one now seems to care about their right to a dignified death. No one except Dr. Cristina Cattaneo, who is bravely and determinedly fighting for their cause. (Festival information, Nyon 2023)
