The Encyclopedia of Migrants
The Encyclopedia of Migrants is an art project initiated by Paloma Fernández Sobrino and jointly organized by the association L'âge de la tortue.
Initially based in Rennes, the project grew out of the collaboration between 8 cities from the European Atlantic Coast in France, Spain, Portugal and Gibraltar, between 2014 and 2017.
The Encyclopedia is a collection of 400 personal letters written by migrants, compiled with photographic portraits of each witness.
It also includes 16 texts written by researchers coming from the fields of humanities and social sciences.
This film tells the story of the joint creation of the Encyclopedia by more than 700 people.
