Event Details (RW2019)
Wednesday 23rd January at 4pm: Those Who Jump/Les Sauteurs (Abou Bakar Sidibé, Moritz Sibert, and Estephan Wagner, 2016) introduced by Professor Laura Rascaroli, Film and Screen Media.
In northern Morocco, lies the Spanish enclave of Melilla: Europe on African Land. On the mountain above, live over a thousand hopeful African migrants, watching the fence separating Morocco and Spain. Abou from Mali is one of them – the protagonist in front of the camera, as well as the person behind it. For over a year, he has ceaselessly attempted to jump the fence. "A masterpiece of empathy and moral imagination" (Joshua Oppenheimer, director, The Act of Killing and The Look of Silence).
All welcome. Organised by Department of Film & Screen Media
