Nuno ESCUDEIRO, 75 minutes, Documentary, In English and French with English subtitles, Italy/ France, 2019
For centuries the valleys of the Roya and the Durance, between Italy and France, belonged to one country or the other. Today it is through these valleys that refugees try to pass when they have been refused entrance at the border at Menton or Ventimiglia.
Faced with their distress, some local people have decided to welcome them anyway, to protect them, to grant them “board and lodging”. But this gesture is both risky and illegal. The people living in the valley decided to make their actions public, as an appeal for solidarity. But then the media descended, leading to a far greater police presence and yet more controls.
This film tells some personal stories but also shows their collective actions. It follows ordinary men and women who, in the name of solidarity, are fighting to continue doing what they believe to be morally right.
“The Valley” has participated in numerous film festivals such as: HOT DOCS, BFI London Film Festival, RedHuman Right Festival, MedFilm Festival, Doc Point Film Festival – Helsinki, Lunenburg Film Festival, Bergen Film Festival, Via Emilia Doc Fest.
