To the Four Winds | Libre (N/C 12A+) 

In the Roya Valley located between France and Italy, thousands of migrants try to cross the border each month in search of a better life. Cédric Herrou, a local farmer, has been welcoming migrants at his home since the beginning of the crisis, turning his backyard into a much-needed shelter. With the help of friends and volunteers, he challenges French immigration policies which make it impossible for these families to set foot on French soil and seek asylum. Filmed over two years by documentary filmmaker Michel Toesca in an area that is just a train ride away from the glitz and glamour of Cannes, Herrou emerges as an everyday hero who will do anything to help the immigrants, even risking his own freedom.
