Invisible

A Film by Shirin Barghnavard

Synopsis

The Berlin Wall is a metaphor for the concept of separation in this film. While seeing the remnants of the Berlin Wall today, surrounded by excited tourists, taking photographs, we hear the voices of several artists from different backgrounds who talk about their bitter personal experiences imposed on them due to their nationalities. These voices express their protest over the emphasis on the term “Nationality”, a very strong but hidden and invisible wall of today. They believe that stressing on the concept of nationality deepens the boundaries and separation between people, a separation similar to the one that the Berlin Wall created.
