The Sahara Desert, unites the sub-Saharan Africa, with the Maghreb countries. It is crossed by immigrants, mostly from East Africa and in particular political refugees, mostly from the Horn of Africa. The crossing of the Sahara is done with trucks, entrusted to criminal organizations involved in human trafficking. During the journey the passengers suffer the violence, by different kinds of militias much present in those territories (Libya, Chad, Sudan), and sometimes by the same smugglers who organize the trips. Over the past decade, at least 1,594 people have lost their lives crossing the Sahara, according to estimates of the site Fortress Europe. © Giulio Piscitelli/Contrasto.

Le motivazioni della giuria

«La giuria riconosce all’autore la capacità di aver realizzato un affresco della società afgana nelle sue molteplici sfumature, raccontando la quotidianità di un paese che è riuscito a mantenere viva la propria cultura e un barlume di normalità nonostante un conflitto devastante. I 10 anni di guerra sono raccontati con una profondità di visione e una capacità di empatia che riescono a presentare la complessa realtà afgana nella sua contraddittorietà, che oscilla da una profonda disperazione a un’altrettanto profonda bellezza. Il lavoro supera quindi lo sviluppo classico del racconto reportagistico e diventa la storia per immagini di un’intera civiltà».
