Jerada is a mining town in Morocco. Coal mining officially ceased in 2001. Since then, the recession has hit and revolt continues to rumble among the local population. L’mina attempts to recreate a kind of archive of Jerada by revealing the stories of its inhabitants and the memory of its industrial architecture.
