The Wall

CBS Entertainment, Cinetex International

This dramatic presentation recreates the heroic Warsaw ghetto uprising during World War II. Historical accuracy is achieved through extensive location photography and considerable attention to lighting, costume, and scenic design. Beyond production excellence, The Wall is distinguished by its humanity and its humility. By avoiding gratuitous and graphic violence, and instead, focusing on individual and family struggle, the story is vividly and successfully realized. In the opinion of the Peabody Board, The Wall is a worthy recipient of a Peabody Award.
