ACROSS THE FENCE: TELLING OUR STORY, AND BUILDING STRONG BONDS
We live, we love, we laugh, we cry – but we often leave things unsaid, and too often we don’t know each other’s stories.
August Wilson’s FENCES is about many things, but centrally it is a story of a father, a mother and a son – Troy, Rose and Cory – all the things said between them, and all of the things left unsaid.
Denzel Washington and Viola Davis are bringing this iconic play to the big screen this Christmas, December 25th in movie theaters around the country.
What if families used this FENCES moment to build stronger bonds? What if around the country, hundreds of sons and daughters, grandsons and granddaughters, mothers and fathers, mentors, friends and more and more shared the type of messages with loved ones that they’ve never shared before? Or interviewed their loved ones for the first time, asking questions they’ve never asked before?
That is what ACROSS THE FENCE is all about. Around the country this holiday season, in support of FENCES folks will be sharing interviews, family photos, original artwork, song and more with loved ones. You can submit these messages, interviews and more on this website, and share them on social media using the hashtag #ACROSSTHEFENCE.
This is a healing moment in support of a very special film, and we invite you to join us.
