Synopsis

Starting that date, Connected Walls offered web visitors the possibility to virtually break down two North/South frontiers : the US/Mexico border and the Spain/Morocco border.

Every ten days, during two months, webusers voted on topics that served as points of departure for two local film crews. By allowing these artists to personally document, together, the borders that define their everyday life, Connected Walls revealed to a global audience the effect of these walls, but also proved that the web can open new paths for dialogue.
