Those Who Jump

Those Who Jump


An unprecedented, first person perspective on the experience of African migrants on the threshold of Europe, Those Who Jump is one of the most innovative and powerful documentaries of the year. 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 16 months the camera follows his many attempts to cross the border.
