Sometimes at the feet of those who seek to cross the border clandestinely, sometimes in the hands of those who are in solidarity with them, low cost snow boots circulate between France and Italy. Their route reveals a mountainous territory where men meet and support each other in the rigours of winter.



The Sako Tapes

A film about Sako, an eccentric Indonesian man with Chinese roots. Sako is struggling with his past. He is traumatized because of the murder of his innocent father, who was one of the approximately half to a million alleged communists that were killed in the transition period to the Suharto regime in Indonesia in 1965. Sadly, this brutal period is still taboo in Indonesia and what makes it more painful for Sako is that during this time, he supported the responsible regime. To break the taboo and process his trauma, Sako went out with his camcorder and filmed people close to him and talked with them about their experiences related to this past.
