3 walls, 6 countries. A portrait of division and common humanity.

More than 25 years after the fall of the Berlin Wall, the appetite for erecting barriers between nations still remains: 41 walls currently divide communities, shutting out dialogue, feeding mistrust and resentment. Seeking to understand their impact, this stunning documentary focuses on individuals living on either side of the Spain/Morocco, US/Mexico and South Africa/Zimbabwe borders. Its intimate, observational scenes present a nuanced portrait of lives shaped by division.

While the foundations of a Europe based on free movement crumble, a sizeable portion of the U.S. electorate chants for a colossal wall to be built along its Southern border. How do we rescue the discourse on migration from the growing intolerance that overshadows the debate? From afar, it can feel easy to argue over the moral implications or usefulness of physical borders – this timely documentary delves into the heart of these divides.
