The American Sector
Genres: Documentary, History
Distributor: Grasshopper Film
Courtney Stephens and Pacho Velez's documentary takes viewers on a fractured road trip, encountering panels of the Berlin Wall that have been installed as public monuments throughout the United States. Visiting over 40 sites, the film weaves together the stories people tell about these imported monoliths, capturing how artifacts bond the past and the present.
"Detached and incisive, wry and deceptively whimsical, THE AMERICAN SECTOR is a brisk lesson in how we often fail to learn from history." -Boston Globe
