Bring Down the Walls

Online Event
Young people dancing in a nightclub
Dates and times

3 Nov 2020 - 30 Nov 2020

Online Event

Bring Down the Walls looks at the prison-industrial complex in America, the industry that profits from the expansion of prisons, and juxtaposes it with the liberating power of house music. Directed by artist Phil Collins, the film brings together interviews he conducted with inmates at Sing Sing with documentation of a unique public art project. Transforming a New York firehouse into a community space, the project took the form of a radical school by day, with talks and workshops, and a euphoric dance club by night. A space for knowledge sharing and dancing with abandon!

Part of Cinema Versa, LIFF 2020's selection dedicated to documentary, non-fiction and music film.

Showing online on Leeds Film Player from 3 November. Visit leedsfilm.com for more information.
