Product Description

Chronicling the changing fortunes of Red Hook, Brooklyn, A HOLE IN A FENCE explores the complicated issues of development, class and identity facing one of New York City's most unique neighborhoods.

It's the story of a vanished homeless community and the young architect who documented it; of an urban farm run by local kids amidst a landscape of industrial decay; of young graffiti writers losing their stomping grounds; of the arrival of a controversial Ikea megastore; of a photographer's vision of nature's renewal; of the doomed struggle to save a rare part of the neighborhood's working waterfront; and of a filmmaker's discovery of a fleeting, hidden world on the other side of a rusty old fence.

Review

A complex exploration of urban community living. --guardian.co.uk

A Hole in a Fence is a valuable look at a part of the neighborhood that is nearly being erased and recreated. --Gowanus Lounge

A world of surprising richness and tantalizingly ambiguous possibility. Uncommonly lyrical and soulful. --Godfrey Cheshire, Director of MOVING MIDWAY

We really did not understand what the purpose was to this film. Was it about neighborhoods and what happens when big business comes in? Was it about the plight of the homeless? Was it about architecture and creativity? There were so many themes put forth - we kept waiting for it to all come together and it never did. It was not very compelling to watch.

I was born many years ago in Red Hook and was delighted to get a new look at the places where my family lived and worked. Most of the adults worked for Todd (now IKEA).

A hole in a fence grants us a captivating view into Red Hook. It is a snapshot of this Brooklyn neighborhood at a time when so much is changing in its make-up. The film maker chose wonderfully eclectic characters and obviously has a real knack for making them feel comfortable in front of a camera. Their responses are candid and bring depth to the film. I also greatly appreciate that the film does not attempt to overreach and feed the audience a pre-chewed meal, instead it does what worth while pieces of art often do: it asks important questions.
