The American Sector

October 20 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

THIS SCREENING IS FREE FOR UWM STUDENTS AND UNION CINEMA MEMBERS!

$5 General Admission

For 18 months, Courtney Stephens and Pacho Velez traveled the US to document sections of the Berlin wall that are on display in over 75 locations, ranging from the serious (Fort Benning) to the bizarre (Main Street Station Casino in Las Vegas) and even the campus of nearby Capital University. Along the way, interviews with unusual characters who own, maintain, and interact with pieces of the wall offer a window into American culture, and through the film, these Cold War relics become a catalyst for exploring today’s timely issues.

(Courtney Stephens and Pacho Velez, USA, English, 69 min, 2020, DCP)
