The Fence DVD

SKU ID #281678
$19.98
Acclaimed filmmaker Rory Kennedy examines the aim and effectiveness of the controversial Southern U.S. Border Barrier, a 700-mile fence erected along the more than 2,000-mile U.S.-Mexico border. Kennedy follows her title subject through private ranches, protected wilderness, bustling border towns and scrub desert, offering a revealing and surprising look at the story behind its construction and its ultimate impact. This 35-minute documentary takes a humorous look at the absurd ideological contradictions and misinformation that have dogged the fence from its inception. Featuring candid interviews with border patrol guards, ranchers, environmentalists and voices from both sides of the immigration controversy, the film uses humor to highlight the sometimes stark contrast between fact and political opinion. Ultimately, The Fence is a far-reaching and moving analysis of the unanticipated financial, human and environmental costs that such a project brings, wherever it stands.

    Good information regarding the U.S./Mexico Border including both sides of the issue of illegal immigration. Perfect visual aid to teach students (young and old) about the fallacies of current U.S. immigration policy

      Comments about this product:

      I feel that we, U.S. Citizens, are way too busy to research any topic, particularly immigration, and we tend to believe the "official story" from any channel it may come from. I feel that we have to listen to all sides of any story to try to make the best judment about it. I feel this documentary does that.....
