Ciudad Autónoma de Buenos Aires
Ciudad Autónoma de Buenos Aires

A new frontal view of the bumps in Switzerland/Europe/the First World: the everyday life of a shelter in Lausanne that only allows fifty immigrants each night, which results in a chilling selection ritual every day. Melgar distances himself from overstressing or denouncing through the exposition of the harsh reality, and instead turns it over to the people, who face their own situations with an unquestionable dignity. And, in a quite revealing contrast, he also proceeds to a portrait of the internal rules of the diverse professional staff that manages the center.  ADC
