Pan Left Productions- Launch Event CONNECTED WALLS
Thursday November 13, 2014 – 7pm
Global Justice Center
225 E 26th Street
South Tucson, AZ
The 9th of November 2014 will be the 25th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall. But there are still 41 SEPARATION WALLS dividing populations throughout the world.
Over 2 months starting on the 9th, an innovative new media project called Connected Walls will focus on 2 of these walls: the US/Mexico border wall and the Morocco/Spain wall. Join us on the 13th of November at the Global Justice Center to celebrate the start of this project and to learn more about it.
Every 10 days, 4 local directors living on each side of these walls, divided into 2 film crews, will have to work together despite these physical and cultural borders, in order to create short documentaries about topics assigned to them by viewers. A hybrid of the diary and the independent documentary, those short stories will be daily testimonies about their walls.
The Mexico/US directors, Valeria Fernandez and Fidel Enriquez, will be present at this event as we screen their introductory work and discuss the project with them. Help them start their 60-day journey, and cast your vote for the next mini-documentary of the project!
Sponsored by Pan Left Productions. Kicking off the evening will be a special live-mixed video collage, performed by Pan Left VJ Steev Hise using relevant border footage shot by Pan Left members over the years!
