A Hole In a Fence is a 2008 documentary directed by D.W. Young. The film is set in Red Hook, a unique Brooklyn neighborhood that has been the center of much controversy between different social circles. Young focuses on one area of Red Hook in particular. Although the lot is technically "abandoned," it has actually been the site of a dazzling array of different pursuits, functions and endeavors. The empty lot has taken on a symbolic role in a quiet conflict between commercialism, industrial progress, forward thinking and artistic creativity and freedom. At one point, the lot was a colorful canvas for a group of energetic young graffiti artists who had nowhere else to freely express themselves. At another time, a young Cornell student looked at the lot and saw it as the perfect site to carry out his plans for sustainable living. The lot also acted as a communal shelter for homeless people and, potentially, even a parking lot for IKEA. Young interviews many of the people whose lives would be affected in some way by the fate of the abandoned lot.moreless
