We’re very pleased that Beyond The Walls has been selected to screen at the March 2017 Respect Belfast Human Rights Film Festival in Northern Ireland. We filmed in Belfast and Derry back in 2012 and are excited to be able to show the work of several local muralists through the film. Belfast is where filmmaker Gayle Embrey’s quest began to understand the meaning and purpose of community murals. It’s great to be screening where it all began.
Beyond the Screen is a 10 minute film about a mural project in Rifle, CO. Teens from 4 high schools came together to create a mural this past summer. They chose to illustrate how technology affects their lives, surrounding this imagery with the beautiful scenery of their Rocky Mountain region. The film can be viewed at www.vimeo.com/191657972.
The Educational version of Beyond The Walls, 40 minutes long, airs on KERA, the PBS station in North Texas on Thursday, October 1, 2015 at 11pm. An interview with filmmaker Gayle Embrey will also appear on October 1st on the KERA website at www.artandseek.com.
A 40 minute version of Beyond The Walls is now available to be screened in schools and universities. The film is appropriate for 7th grade and older. There is also an Educational Resource Guide available with the dvd that teachers can use to guide their students to further explore world history as well as how community art is an important tool in social change.
