The Great Wall

Directed by Tadhg O'Sullivan
Ireland, 2015
Documentary
  • German
  • English

Synopsis

The Great Wall moves across fortified landscapes, pausing with those whose lives are framed by borders. Moving inward toward the seat of power, the film holds the European project up to a dazzling cinematic light, refracted through Kafka’s mysterious text; ultimately questioning the nature of power.

Our take

The US-Mexico wall might grab all the attention, but aren’t we surrounded by them? MUBI is proud to host the online premiere of this riveting documentary that audaciously looks at the migration crisis in the eye by surfacing the resonance of Kafka’s universe in today’s Europe.
