Ghosts of Tangier

Ghosts of Tangier

Ghosts of Tangier is about the town of Tangier, its mythology and the illustrious society which gathered there in the post-war years to celebrate life and survival. Tangier as the town of the international zone where one was allowed to trade, love and live freely - the town that was involved in so many stories that it became one itself. Tangier, the harbour on the edge of the desert, the gate to the Western world, a place of sanctuary and transit point.
