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.
