“…the film reveals the inner feelings and predicaments of the homeless, and causes the audience to pay attention to this group living in the shadows.” -World Journal

ABOUT THE WALL

"The Wall: The Stories of the 2018 Minneapolis Homeless Camp" looks back at the saga of this Native American community and the lives of those within it.

Saga of the camp: its growth, the community response, the internal conflicts within, and the eventual transfer of residents to shelter

Stories of the residents: their journeys to the camp, their lives there, and their hopes for a better future. The film follows Kat and Earl, a couple at the camp who open up about the trials of their drug addiction, their relationship, and their hopes to get their children back.
