An ontological portrait of the U. S. -Mexico border, surveys the physical qualities and metaphysical quandaries of this highly politicized, militarized swath of land. The film follows the boundary and its immediate surrounding topography, moving from the Gulf of Mexico to the Pacific Ocean.

Our take

Landscape documentarian Peter Bo Rappmund followed the path of water in his first film and here traces the U.S.-Mexico border. In an era where rhetoric overwhelms the (meta-) physical aspects of the border, Rappmund surveys a national divide with acute precision.
