The Three Billion Dollar Fence


Although we are normally focused exclusively on the current cinema and DVD releases, every so often we see something coming on TV that we think makes it worthwhile to stay at home.

THE FENCE (LA BARDA), Rory Kennedy’s latest HBO documentary, investigates the issues surrounding efforts by the US government to build a 700-mile fence along its troubled 2000-mile-plus border with Mexico.  This documentary covers the impact of the project, revealing how its stated goals – containing illegal immigration, cracking down on drug trafficking and protecting America from terrorists – have given way to unforeseen, even absurd consequences when it debuts THURSDAY, SEPT. 16 (8:00-8:45 p.m. ET/PT), exclusively on HBO.

We think that everyone that watches this documentary WILL have an opinion.
