25 years after the physical Berlin Wall came down and ended the “Mauerkrankheit”, 41 separation walls are still dividing entire populations. By diminishing dialogue perspectives, they are increasing assumptions towards each of the concerned communities. As the Canadian writer Marcello di Cintio mentioned in his book, these concrete structures serve to feed racism by making it almost impossible to engage with anyone but your own community. These structures create two sides and insist on you taking one.
Starting on November 9, 2014, the exact date of the anniversary of the Fall of the Berlin Wall, we will focus on 2 border walls over 2 months:
Part 1. The wall between Morocco and the Spanish enclave of Ceuta
Part 2. The US/Mexico Wall
These 2 walls separate the North from the South. Let’s connect them to discover their differences, their similarities, and start a dialogue between them
Join Irene Gutierrez (Spanish director) & Youssef Drissi (Morocco director), and Valeria Fernandez (US director) & Fidel Enrique (Mexico director) on their 2-month interactive documentary journey.
