In October 2006, the U.S. government decided to build a 700-mile fence along its Mexican border. Three years and $3.1 billion later, The Fence director Rory Kennedy investigates the impact of the project and how its stated goals - stopping illegal immigration, drug trafficking, and terrorism - have given way to unforeseen consequences. Kennedy also produced the film with Liz Garbus and Keven McAlester.

Which Way Home profiles two young boys, Kevin and Fito, who are among the countless children who leave their homes in Central America and attempt to enter the United States illegally in search of a better life. Directed and produced by Rebecca Cammisa, the film earned an Academy Award nomination for Documentary Feature. 

The 29th annual “Contemporary Documentaries” series continues through June 1, showcasing feature-length and short documentaries drawn from the 2009 Academy Award nominations, including the winners, as well as other important and innovative films considered by the Academy that year.
