How the US-Mexico border fence divides people and damages the land
A massive, foreboding and incomplete structure, the US-Mexico border fence winds across some 2,000 miles between Brownsville, Texas and San Diego, California. In The Fence, produced by the US filmmaker Andrew Hida and directed by the US-based British photographer and filmmaker Charles Ommanney, the lens is trained directly on people who live in the shadow of the wall on the US side. Juxtaposing the stories of families, religious leaders and US patrol agents at the border, Ommanney finds a problem with no simple solution.
