The Wall-A World Divided
The Wall-A World Divided looks deep inside the revolution that swept across Europe two decades ago - with the November 1989 opening of the Berlin Wall - to understand how this remarkable event helped end the Cold War without a shot being fired. The film explores the lives of ordinary people caught up in the Cold War politics: a young father forced to tunnel beneath the wall to reunite his family; a teenager whose love of pop culture got him in deep trouble with the state; a student activist helping make a peaceful revolution while facing down tanks; and a young man broken by the ruthless interrogation methods of the secret police.
