It has been 20 years since the world watched spellbound, as the Berlin wall came down. In the euphoria that followed, it seemed as if walls were a thing of the past, especially in the new era of globalization. However in a post-911 world it was clear that sophisticated, hi-tech walls were in fact proliferating around the world.
Up Against the Wall poses the question: do wall works? This documentary focuses on three hot spots: the wall separating Israel and the West Bank, the ’tortilla wall’ between the United States and Mexico and the walls that protect fortress Europe.
