Somebody makes his way from somewhere in Africa towards the sea, towards a better future – or at least that’s what they hope.

L’automne is an impressive short film that tells the story, or stories, of making the long hard trek towards refuge without really showing any people. It shows the way rather than the people making it and develops its very own atmosphere that certainly leaves an impression. It also has some really excellent shots, despite obviously being very limited in its technology. Really good.

Hands on a steering wheel.
