Shores: In the Safe Northern Sun Documentary

When: Fri., Oct. 20, 7 p.m. 2017

Irene Dionisio's documentary tells two stories of compassion and civic virtue on two opposite shores of the Mediterranean, through the correspondence between Mohsen Lihidheb, a postman and intellectual in Zarzis, Tunisia, and Vicenzo Lombardo, a retired cemetery worker in Lampedusa, Italy. While searching on the beach for materials for his Museum of the Memory of the Sea, a true monument to the victims of migration, Lihidheb finds a body which he decides to bury with dignity, without thinking twice about it. Lombardo in Lampedusa shares this same sense of urgency, tending the tombs of the unknown people.
