The Home Front in NY

The Home Front by Phie Ambo is selected for DocuWeeks and will be showing in New York 12-18th of August

TheHome Front is about conflicts in our private sphere: feuds between neighbors. The film follows a boundary inspector who mediates between disagreeing neighbors. We enter the homes of the feuding parties to learn about the conflicts from both sides. Why is it so difficult to solve a conflict so close at hand? And what do fences and hedges represent? Is this really what the conflicts are all about?
