Accross The Mountain
A documentary by Juliette de Marcillac
52 min I French
Montgenèvre, a ski station in the French Alps, at the French-Italian border. Night falls on the station. A police car drives along the snow front. Suddenly, uncertain figures cross the tracks, bags on their backs, binoculars around their necks. They are the marauders. In the silence, the darkness and the growing cold, the tension mounts.
When at last frightened figures emerge from the shadows, it is the commotion to exfiltrate the exiles to the solidarity refuge of Briançon, a safe place 15 km below.
