Those from the Shore / Dzyun Kar

Marseille, 2014. Dozens of Armenian asylum seekers trying to survive while waiting for their application to be considered. All fled Armenia because, for one reason or another, they would incur a risk of imprisonment or death. Forced stillness, impotence, they live in an in-between: between two countries, between two lives. In a time and abstract space, made of nothing, where their life escapes them completely.
