THE WILD FRONTIER [L'HÉROÏQUE LANDE, LA FRONTIÈRE BRÛLE]
(France, 2016, Nicolas Klotz & Elisabeth Perceval, 225 mins)
A highly sensitive portrait of the now demolished Calais ‘jungle’ and its community of displaced migrants. Through observing and residing within the sprawl, systems and life of the temporary city for at times up to 12,000 people – paying intimate attention to a selection of its residents’ lives, experiences, aspirations and journeys – filmmakers Klotz and Perceval offer a film of witness and solidarity composed through pure and vital cinema. A crucial film which treats its epic content with great sensitivity.
