And the Walls Came Down: Two Voices of Shared Mortality

They weren’t asked: Will you?
They  were asked: Can you?

And the Walls Came Down is a challenging, thought-provocative short film by Adam Witten, a crime drama set within critical moments of mutual confrontation with potential death.  The film uses the duality of its two main characters, the criminal and the agent of the law, to reveal the reciprocal nature of interpersonal relationships, in this case through a tragic awareness of human mortality.  Although each believes himself to be the opposite of the other, in fact each is disclosed to be the co-constructor of the other person’s fate.  They are interwined voices singing the same anthem of self-destruction, which Norman Mailer titled The Executioner’s Song.
