Those Who Jump
In northern Morocco lies the Spanish enclave of Melilla: European territory on African soil. On the mountain above wait over a thousand hopeful African migrants, watching the border fence. One of them is Abou from Mali, the protagonist in front of the camera as well as the person behind it. For over a year, he has repeatedly attempted to breach the fence. Abou characterises the struggle for human dignity and freedom on one of the world's most militarised frontiers. The film is ultimately about the empowerment of a filmmaker armed only with his camera and his hopes.
