Filmmaker Interviews

Slawomir Grünberg (2002)

Slawomir Grünberg claims that anyone who desires to make a change should see his film Fenceline. The film tells the story of a town divided into two distinct communities — one of black residents who are the descendants of former slaves, the other, white residents who are largely employees of Shell Oil who has a refinery in the town. Margie Richard leads a campaign for the African-American residents to be relocated due health issues caused by the pollution. In this interview, Grünberg talks about what drew him to following Margie and the inspiration she can provide to others.
