Fence

A short film by Lendita Zeqiraj

This is a very simple story, yet it reveals many complexities of our society, identifying them through characters’ way of communication, struggling to filter and convey their experiences and beliefs. Directed by Kosovar filmmaker Lendita Zeqiraj, Fence is set during a small family gathering and follows several generations as they clash over different beliefs, all while a young boy, Genti, struggles to be heard. That just barely scratches the surface of the different layers Lendita is weaving into her film. With an ensemble cast of professional and non-actors, she explores how different opinions on race, gender, and equality co-exist in a single family.

Fence won three Academy-qualifying awards — including the Palm Springs Shorts Fests — by reminding us of the walls and fences we build in our minds when we fail to challenge unjust ideas and uphold outdated traditions. In an increasingly fragmented world, films like this are exactly what we need to keep us moving forward.
