Even the Walls is a short documentary about the members of a public-housing neighborhood grappling with the forces of gentrification. Unable to say goodbye to their homes or to each other, the residents continue to take care of the neighborhood children and tend to their gardens, even as bulldozers raze sections of the development. But time is running out, and the 30-acre property is being redeveloped quickly. Now the residents must recollect their memories and their belongings, and decide whether to leave or to return to a place they know deeply but will not recognize. Even the Walls chronicles these stories and spaces, collecting what evidence is left of more than seven decades of carefully cultivated human connectivity.
