The Great Wall
Ireland/UK/Germany, 2014, 74 min. Screening 21 June. Dir. Tadhg O’Sullivan.
The Great Wall offers a new perspective on the widely discussed issues of the migration crisis. Tadhg O’Sullivan takes a step back from terrifying tales of fence-jumpers and the storm-tossed wooden boats that fill the Mediterranean with the desperate of the earth to contemplate what it means for all of us in Europe today to live behind a great wall. In an inspired gesture, alongside O’Sullivan’s troubled images we hear the narrator’s voice from Kafka’s short story, The Great Wall of China, undermining the self-serving narratives we tell ourselves.
