The American Sector
Directed by Courtney Stephens and Pacho Velez • 2020 • United States
For eighteen months, Courtney Stephens and Pacho Velez traveled the U.S. to document sections of the Berlin Wall that are on display in over seventy-five locations, ranging from the serious (Fort Benning) to the bizarre (Main Street Station Casino in Las Vegas). Along the way, interviews with unusual characters who own, maintain, and interact with pieces of the wall offer a thought-provoking window into American culture at a moment when these Cold War relics have a timely political and social significance.
