Les sauteurs / Those who Jump

by Moritz Siebert, Estephan Wagner, Abou Bakar Sidibé Border Lines

Hope and fear live hand in hand in the forests of the Gurugu Mountains in Northern Morocco, where there is a clear view of the Spanish enclave Melilla. Images taken by a hidden surveillance camera, belonging to the Spanish border police, show a group of people trying to scale a high-security boundary fence in vain. The fence separates the African continent from Europe. Like many others, Malian citizen Abou has lived in the clandestine camp for over a year, ceaselessly attempting to jump the fence. One day, he is being equipped with a camera. As he portrays the struggle for human dignity on one of the World's most militarized frontiers, LES SAUTEURS ultimately becomes a movie about the empowerment of a man armed only with his camera and his aspirations.
