The U.S.-Mexico border is the most frequented international crossing in the world. The longest land boundary between the developed and the developing world, the border extends for 1,969 miles.
Over a period of months, a documentary crew traveled along the border from Brownsville/Matamoros to San Diego/Tijuana. As they traveled, they edited short videos to show the human face of the politically charged region. Isolated from the whole, the videos – of minute men and musicians, ranchers, activists, doctors, and deejays – may seem disparate, but together they form new meanings that transcend their individual subject matter. Designed to play off one another in any order, they come together in what the filmmakers call a “mosaic documentary” – one with no beginning, middle, or end. Join us for a special one-night Border Stories screening featuring Upstate’s own Ben Fundis.
