“The Berlin Wall” started with the idea, “what if a man wanted to rebuild the Berlin Wall”.
I loved the idea of one man flying against the tide of public opinion, of what the world wants, rebuilding a wall that everyone wanted torn down.
It opened up questions about the nature of public opinion. What it means, how groups of people so often develop opinions that are not logical, that are not based on the facts. Instead often projecting their own, already-formed opinions onto whatever they see in front of them.
This was the genesis of “The Berlin Wall”.
