400 PAIRES DE BOTTES

 

Helène Baillot and Raphaël Botiveau. France. 2020. 17’

Somewhere in Italy, in the mountains, near the French border, a sub-Saharan migrant puts on hiking boots. In the evening, he will cross the border at Montgenèvre. These and other boots will be returned to Italy by committed French citizens. Many other emigrants will use them after him. The circular path of the boots reveals solidarity connections linked to the harshness of the Alpine winter.
