NON RÉCLAMÉ
dir. Jean-François Martel
Nish Média/Radio-Canada

Incursion dans la triste réalité des corps non réclamés au Québec. En 2016 seulement, les morgues de la province en comptaient 190, soit deux fois plus qu’auparavant. Pour des raisons diverses et toujours mal comprises, ces êtres ne reposent pas en paix mais dans l’oubli et l’abandon. Pour explorer ce phénomène, le documentaire se penche sur quatre cas; quatre personnes dont nous reconstituerons la vie, et pour qui nous essaierons de comprendre pourquoi leurs dépouilles ont été abandonnées.

 

Non réclamé takes us inside the sad reality of the unclaimed deceased in Quebec. In 2016, the coroners had 190 cases of unclaimed deaths in the province, twice as many as the previous year. For various reasons, these individuals have passed on are unable to truly Rest In Peace. Rather, they are abandoned or forgotten. To explore this phenomenon, this documentary will explore four cases. It will follow the journey of four individuals that have passed in which we recreate their lives and their death, to fully understand why they remain unclaimed. Non réclamé will shed light on this troubling ever growing trend.
