Made for Walking

Hélène Baillot, Raphael Botiveau

Somewhere in Italy, among the mountains, not far from the border with France, a pair of discount sports store boots is put on by a man from West Africa.

With them he will undertake crossing of the border, in Montgenèvre, the oldest French winter sports resort. These boots have been worn by hundreds of black men before him and they will be used by many others after him. The circular path of the boots unveils a mountain territory on the borders of France and Italy, where exchange and solidarity connections are tied in the harshness of winter.
