Synopsis

Paul and Ricky, two sides of the same coin, dealer and DEA agent. A cyclical story, the two characters pushed by the forces of their reality. In a test of commitment to their ideals, both men have to choose between proving themselves individually and the insanity of a shared fate.

Directors Notes

I have always been very interested in the crime drama genre. Having had a few early, if not light, brushes with the law, the archetypes and motivations of both the outlaw and lawman fascinate me. Inspired by the verite style of the modern crime drama, I though it would be exciting to use that style in combination with the idea of a cinematic fugue to explore the two voices of outlaw and law man.

The beauty of And the Walls Came Down is that it uses the structure of the fugue and the duality of the dealer and the DEA agent. Their complementing relationships show that even as both side of the war on drugs belive themselves the opposite of the other; really they are inter twined voices in the same destructive song.
