Documentary - Completed 2015

The world is increasingly divided by walls. There are human beings on one side and the other. We do not want to discuss whether its existence is absurd or logical, if unavoidable or not, we only want to show that people who are on either side are essentially equal.

    • Synopsis
    • When the Berlin Wall fell 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 millions 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 Europe and Africa. 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. We use the absurd symmetry of each wall as a mirror. 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.
