The Wall

A film by Dorothy Allen-Pickard

Commissioned by ICA, Dazed and Channel 4 Random Acts

A man drives his car slowly through a mechanical carwash and leaves an affectionate answer phone message for his young daughter. He recalls moments from the weekend, as well as some distant memories they shared together. As he’s pulled deeper into the machine, we witness what she does not: her father’s gradual breakdown.
