The Double Steps
by Isaki Lacuesta
Spain/Switzerland 2011, 87 min, HD
What is the only thing that is destroyed when shared?
The best way to escape from your pursuers without leaving any trail is to walk backwards in your own footprints. That is what François Augiéras believed. He covered a bunker in the desert with paintings, and then let it sink into the sand so that no one would find it. But who is Augiéras? Legionnaire, painter, writer, gunman, saint, thief, devil or a mixture of all those?
