'The American Sector': Film Review | Berlin 2020

'Elegantly Crafted Road Trip' | Sheri Linden | The Hollywood Reporter

Documentarians Courtney Stephens and Pacho Velez visited dozens of the pieces of the Berlin Wall that are on display in the United States, creating a composite portrait through a historical lens.

Dismantled in 1989 with profound political repercussions and symbolic power, the wall that separated East and West Berlin for 28 years lives on, in new and no less symbolic ways, in locations around the world.
