How can walls become doors?

Mano a Mano Documentary


How can walls become doors?

As a favor, we were asked to tell the story of two artists creating a mural for the San Diego Art Institute.

The challenge - what is so special about two men, two cultures, two passions and one wall? At a time when other walls are being built to divide cultures and keep people apart, how is this wall bringing people together?

We engaged directly with the artists and employed a documentary-style production to dig into the story behind the mural and what’s behind the Mano a Mano Project as a whole.

And what started as a small favor was chosen to become a documentary for KPBS Public Broadcasting.

Ralph Waldo Emerson once said, “Every wall is a door.”
