D.W. Young's A Hole in a Fence, the documentary which focuses on Red Hook, has been floating around for a while and is coming back to town this week -- just before the new IKEA opens its doors in the 'nabe. In 46 minutes Young explores the hurdles the neighborhood is facing and "the complicated issues of development, class and identity facing the city's most populous borough." Young urban farmers and graffiti writers are followed as they watch their landscape disappear alongside their elder counterparts.

The film will screen on Thursday May 29th aboard the Waterfront Museum barge on Pier 44 in Red Hook, followed by a panel discussion on the future of the New York waterfront (watch the enlarged trailer here).
