In the interwiev with Vahid Jalivvand, director of Beyond the Wall, in the section Concorso Venezia 79, we talked about how to give to a public wound by misfortunes and cruelty the hope to stand up and live again.

Shab, Dakheli, Divar – Beyond the Wall: Ali, a blind man, is attempting to commit suicide when he is interrupted by the concierge of his building. He is informed that the police are in search of a woman who has escaped and hidden somewhere in the building. Little by little, Ali finds out that the fugitive woman, Leila, is inside his apartment. After participating in a workers’ protest that led to chaos, she is distraught about her four-year-old son who was lost when she was taken in a police van. Gradually, Ali becomes emotionally attached to her. Wishing to flee reality, helping Leila becomes a refuge in his own world of imagination.
