Bring Down the Walls

Show trailer
Pumping house music meets political activism at a club in New York, where former convicts find new hope.

In the middle of downtown New York lies an old fire station. During the day, it is a meeting place for the activists of Bring Down the Walls, and in the evening it is a house club. The doors are open to everyone, and the aim is to build a community for the former inmates of America's overcrowded and increasingly industrialised prisons, which have a massive overrepresentation of non-white prisoners. The artist Phil Collins explores the liberating political potential of the dance floor and the open microphone, where the guests share their own experiences with each other. The participatory project gives us new hope as the house music is pumping.
