Through the Repellent Fence: A Land Art Film by Sam Douglas has been in the works for five years and premieres at the Museum of Modern Art. The film follows Postcommodity as they create a two-mile long work straddling the U.S.-Mexico border in 2015 to “put land art in a tribal context.” It also includes scenes to expand the land art conversation with Lucy Lippard, Matt Coolidge of the Center for Land Use Interpretation, and Chris Taylor of Land Arts of the American West at Texas Tech.
The film has also been selected as a Festival Favorite for the SXSW 2017 Film Festival.
