LES SAUTEURS / THOSE WHO JUMP
2016 - 82 min. - French / English
Director: Abou Bakar Sidibé, Moritz Siebert, Estephan Wagner
Producers: Signe Byrge Sørensen & Heidi E. Christensen
Mount Gurugu overlooks the Spanish enclave of Melilla on northern Africa's Mediterranean coast. The European Union and Africa are separated here by a high-security border facility consisting of three fences. Refugees, mostly from the sub-Saharan region, live in the tree-covered foothills, from where they try to cross the land border between Morocco and Spain. One of them is Abou Bakar Sidibé from Mali, who in Les Sauteurs is both the protagonist and the one doing the documenting.
For Estephan, Les Sauteurs is a feature debut even if he worked as a documentary director for over a decade, always approaching his themes from the point of view of his protagonists. Both as editor and director, he won several awards on the international festivals circuit.
