Part of Film 2021
Directed by Phil Collins | 2020

This galvanizing documentary examines the U.S. prison system through the lens of house music, telling the story of a public art project and anti-incarceration dance party in Lower Manhattan. Filmmaker Phil Collins joins with Black queer artists and prison abolition activists to create and chronicle this temporary communal space, and its mission of exuberant survival.

Blending the ballroom culture of Paris is Burning with the fiery activism of How to Survive a Plague, Bring Down The Walls is a loud cry against mass incarceration, a showcase of nightlife in downtown NYC, and a joyous call for equity on the dance floor and beyond.

Q&A with director Phil Collins Fri, Nov 12 after the 7pm screening.

Bring Down The Walls was originally organized in May of 2018 by Creative Time, in partnership with The Fortune Society, Phil Collins, and over 100 collaborators.
