About the Film Directed by: Pablo Iraburu and Miguel Molina | Length: 1 hour 22 minutes

“When the Berlin Wall came down, we dismissed the idea of separation walls as something from the past. Reality is exactly the opposite. There have never been so many walls. There are thousands of kilometers of fences, gates, barbed wire and barriers in the most distant and dissimilar parts of the world. This film tells the true stories of people living on both sides of very different walls. These are intimate and intense stories that show us that on both sides, we all share the same hopes, fears, thoughts, and emotions; the same desire to survive” (Pablo Iraburu, director). “Walls” is a film that sheds light on the borders between nations and the walls that separate people.
