Talking With the Dead
Parler Avec Les Morts
The road follows the river down the canyon, up a mountain, and through a silent valley covered with snow. Every day, Darija Vujinovic drives hundreds of kilometres in her small blue Ford Fiesta, from highways to dirt tracks, looking for people whose loved ones went missing during the war. The blood of the living is the only way to give a name to the thousands of bodies still waiting in mortuaries or being exhumed every year from newly discovered mass graves. This has been Darija’s job for the past fifteen years.
