Recent & Upcoming Projects

The American Sector

The American Sector is a documentary about the Berlin Wall’s legacy in American political discourse. In one sense, the Berlin Wall fell on November 9th, 1989. But in another sense, it still stands, its concrete panels now installed as monuments to their own collapse. 
From the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library to Ripley’s Believe-It-Or-Not, The American Sector captures the sixty-some locations, all across the United States, in which these public monuments have been installed. By exploring these sites, the film tries to answer: what does this obsolete German barrier represent to Americans today? Using observational footage, as well as extensive interviews with curators, tourists, and casual passersby, the film draws out the mix of symbolism and rhetoric, history and memory, that informs Americans’ recollections of the Cold War and, by extension, of the country’s current relationship to the world beyond its borders.
