America ReFramed

Through the Repellent Fence

Season 6 Episode 9 | 58m 16s

THROUGH THE REPELLENT FENCE follows the creation of a two-mile long ephemeral art installation by Native Americans artists Raven Chacon, Cristóbal Martínez and Kade L. Twist, known as "Postcommodity." Their piece "Repellent Fence" installs floating balloons north and south of the border to represent a metaphorical "stitching" together of the United States and Mexico.
