The world is increasingly divided by walls, physically separating the human beings living on either side of them. Brilliant editing connects people living and working on both sides of the controversial barriers between Mexico and the U.S., Spain and Morocco, and South Africa and Zimbabwe. This cinematic investigation explores the building and maintenance of these WALLS as a growing global phenomenon.

Press

  • Viewers are notified of many other walled-off borders and trouble spots around the world, with the inference that more will come, thanks to heartless politicians and border hawks. A timely film, this is highly recommended.

  • LONG SYNOPSIS

    When the Berlin Wall fell the end of History was proclaimed. And we shelved the idea of separation walls as part of the past. Reality is exactly the opposite. Never in the history of humanity have we built so many walls. There have never been so many fences, barbed wire, ditches and walls. There are miles of kilometres, in the most far off and different parts of the world. This film narrates real stories of people who live on both sides of very different walls. The one that divides South Africa and Zimbabwe, the separation wall between the United States and Mexico, the fence that in Melilla is used as a border between Spain and Morocco. The visual and narrative approach is centred on the wall concept, not entering geopolitical analysis or the strategic or moral assessment of the situation. The fact is that the wall exists. The fact is that there are human lives on both sides. Knowing the daily life of a few personal stories, the wall lets us talk about something much deeper. The close and intense portraits of real people, approaching their real and intimate life let us see that, on both sides, we all share the same dreams, fears, thoughts and emotions. The drama represented by each wall –a drama that must be toldlets us to transmit and celebrate an emotion that has no borders and, unlike the walls, is immune to time: the absurd symmetry of each wall serves as a mirror and lets us discover that everybody shares the same essence.
