THE VALLEY tells the story of a group of citizens in Roya and Durance Valleys, who very openly help people crossing the border by commiting acts of civil disobedience. The film has been awarded the Emerging International filmmaker award upon its premiere at Hotdocs Toronto.

Nuno Escudeiro is in Helsinki from January 30 till February 3.
