In northern Morocco lies the Spanish enclave of Melilla: Europe on African land. On the mountain above, live more than 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. At the fence, they have to overcome the razor-wire, automatic pepper spray and brutal authorities.

“A masterpiece of empathy
“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.
Here's another chance to catch our Q&A with co-director Moritz Seibert, hosested by DocHouse Director Elizabeth Wood.
Filmed Wednesday 5th April 2017.
