THOSE WHO JUMP (LES SAUTEURS)

+ Q&A with director Moritz Siebert on 5th April
Dir: Moritz Siebert & Estephan Wagner & Abou Bakar Sidibé
Denmark / 2016 / 80mins

“A masterpiece of empathy and moral imagination.” - Joshua Oppenheimer

Malian refugee Abou and his friends stand on a sparse Moroccan hillside looking out at the tiny Spanish enclave of Melilla. All that stands between them and Europe are three towering fences.

German filmmakers Moritz Siebert and Estephan Wagner entrusted Abou with a camera to film life in the makeshift camp the men call home. From the inside, Abou casually captures the danger and the camaraderie, the boredom and the hope, the quasi-normality and the extraordinary singularity of life in this limbo land.

Forget the headlines, the statistics, and the politics of global migration: through Abou’s lens, the desperation of tens of thousands of refugees to reach Europe becomes tangible and deeply moving.

A special screening on Wed 5 April at 18:20 will be followed by a Q&A with director Moritz Siebert.
