The River and the Wall

In The River and the Wall, directed by Texas native filmmaker Ben Masters, Ben and his crew navigate 1,200 miles of the border between the US and Mexico on horses, mountain bikes, and canoes. While partly an adventure tale, Ben's real purpose in The River and the Wall is to explore the wildlife across this complex and diverse terrain, and understand how it would be affected by Trump's proposed wall. The film provides a different layer to the debate raging from Washington, D.C., to McAllen and El Paso and beyond as Masters paddles, pedals, and rides his way through this issue.

Charting Texas Politics | Chris Tackett

 

Chris Tackett digs deeply into the corrosive effects of Dark Money in Texas Politics. His work is revealing how a few wealthy individuals are buying politicians and political races, gathering influence and power, and spending millions to advance their own self-serving agendas.

The issue of Dark Money buying politicians affects us all, no matter where we fall on the political spectrum. All are invited and urged to look at the data Chris has compiled and learn about this threat to democracy. Know where your Texas State Senator and Representative get their money. See who they really represent.
