RESUME

Mzinda, former phosphate mining city in Morocco, has become a phantasmagoric village, nothing works, all the vital infrastructures are closed: the hospital, the school, the two Moorish baths...except the mosque and the electricity, which has never been cut. My father was a miner and a shop steward. Despite the silence surrounding the history of this place, I reconstruct the working memory of the city and I try to understand what lies behind the brutal death of Mzinda.
