World of Walls

documentary film (expected 2025, 80 min, SK/CZ)
original title: Svet stien


For the underprivileged majority, it is a dark world of devastating climate catastrophe, permanent economic crisis, and daily hard work. For the new elite, it is an apocalyptic version of the postcolonial “American Dream”.


To evoke and imagine the near future, World of Walls is set in an environment of extreme social divisions and an escalating climate crisis. The story takes place in an unspecified country that is being destroyed by continuous environmental disasters, located in today’s South Africa, close to Pretoria-Johannesburg. One part of the society lives inside strictly protected estates with secure infrastructure, while the rest of the world survives on scarce resources on the other side of the wall. People knew these catastrophes were coming years in advance but ignored the fact. The dystopian reality is revealed through the curious eyes of the two child protagonists.
