Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Something To Do With the Wall began life in 1986 as a documentary about the 25th anniversary of the Berlin Wall. Filmmakers Ross McElwee and Marilyn Levine were still editing their film when, in 1989, the infamous Wall came down. McElwee and Levine returned to the site to film new scenes, and the result is this engaging "then and now" exercise. Having interviewed some of the more colorful and eccentric characters who habitually hung out around the Wall in 1986, the filmmakers bring them back before the camera to tell the world what they've been doing for the past three years.
