About the film:

A secret museum in an art hotel located near the Israeli West Bank barrier sparks intrigue when it’s revealed to be a creation of controversial artist Banksy. In a monumental collaboration with American-Palestinian model and musician Anwar Hadid, Pink Floyd’s Roger Waters, and the grandson of former South African President Nelson Mandela, Kweku Mandela, Walled Off (2024)  journeys through the hotel with “the worst view in the world,” as well as the occupied Palestinian territories, and a lesser-known yet relevant past to highlight the importance of creative resistance as a form of protest.
