"In Security" is an engaging and thought provoking one-hour documentary film about how barbed wire, a simple 19th century invention used to secure agricultural property, has evolved into a silent sentinel that acts as a means of control over people and spaces around the world. "In Security" takes a historical journey from Texas and the Great Plains, to the 20th century battlefields of Europe, and on to South Africa, the Middle East, the U.S. border with Mexico, and finally to the Louisiana State Penitentiary. The film reveals how barbed wire introduced concepts of boundaries and private property where none existed before, and how strands of wire have been used ever since to restrict the free movement of people everywhere. The premise of “In Security” is that barbed wire, although silent, speaks clearly of the turmoil of our past and present.
