Au Bonheur des Morts

Every year, in the week before All Saints' Day, the cemetery of a small village in La Mancha (Casas Ibanez, Spain) is the scene of a most interesting spectacle. All week long, the women of the village are busy with brooms, cloths and mops to prepare the graves for the great visits of All Saints' Day. They are of all ages, all styles: old, young, melancholic and dashing, with them, the cemetery is filled with colorful aprons, words, stories, memories and encounters. At the back of the cemetery, a woman is watering yellow daisies that are planted on an empty apartment. Next to it, a small plaque reads: "In memory of the 23 men shot in this place on the 25th of 1939 to defend democracy and freedom".
