The camera follows the preparation of the most enigmatic and austere works of art by Dimitris Papaioannou titled “Still Life”, focusing on the vision and philosophy of the artist, the way he works and his devoted co-workers. The outcome is the controversial portrait worthy of the internationally acclaimed Greek stage director, choreographer, performer and artist.

Behind the Wall' is a documentary on Dimitris Papaioannou, the Greek director, choreographer, performer, visual artist, but it isn't a typical artist's portrait. By following the preparation of his most mysterious and austere work, called 'Still Life', the film focuses on his vision and philosophy, his working routine and his dedicated collaborators.

'Behind the Wall' draws a parallel between the creative process and the myth of Sisyphus, pointing out that life and work of great artists are symbiotic.
