Second day was one of the most difficult one. We had to film an interview with my mother and one of the location was this local cemetery. Walking through the rows, she was naming her friends every single minute. Since I was recording her sound with a wireless mic, I heard everything she was saying. That was one of the hardest moments for me as well, as at this cemetery there is a grave of my uncle and my friend’s mother. Grave after grave, you can see the birthdates… 1970, 1978, 1982 and so on… AIDS was the main reason for many young people buried here.
The cemetery was opened in 1999 and it’s already shot down for no space… For a town of less than 80 000, there is a 4th cemetery recently opened.
