WALL – The Film

Wall-Camera-woman-Capture

We are exploring the possibility of making a film as part of the WALL project.

In discussion with local film maker and photographer Robert Piwko we hope to produce a 20 min film which explores the issues of walls in our community.

  • What is a wall?
  • What does the word ‘wall‘ mean to you?
  • A wall can be a protector but also be a barrier.

We are challenging people to think about walls and express their ideas in our multi media project. Our aim is to bring people together through the arts, and this part of the project will involve people of all ages, abilities and backgrounds.  The film is a spine to the WALL project. However, it will not just record the individual projects and events, it will look deeper into the issues raised and lessons learnt during the project.

The film will include interviews with local people and celebrate the creativity of the projects which evolve as the project progresses over the next year.
