The River and the Wall

  • McConnell Auditorium, CWU 405 East University Way Ellensburg, WA, 98926 United States (map)

Three Texans, a New York ornithologist, and a Brazilian immigrant embark on a 1,200-mile mountain bike, horse, and canoe journey down the Rio Grande to document the US-Mexico border before construction of a border wall and to explore its impacts on immigration, public lands, wildlife, landowners, and border security. Directed by Ben Masters (Unbranded) and produced by Hillary Pierce (Tower), the SXSW award winning documentary will take you on an unforgettable, hilarious, and gorgeous adventure down one of the most controversial, and often misunderstood, regions in the world: The US-Mexico border. During the three month journey, the team meets with R-Congressman Will Hurd, former D-Congressman Beto O'Rourke, immigrants, border patrol agents, wildlife biologists, ranchers, farmers, and folks on both sides of the border to see for themselves where a physical border wall would actually go and what effects it would have. Runtime: 1 hr 49 min.
