Description

"Border Film Project" is an effort to simplify and humanise the complexities of immigration and the U.S.-Mexico border by telling stories that no news piece, policy debate or academic study can convey. Three friends spent three months along the U.S.-Mexico border distributing hundreds of cameras to two groups on different sides of the line: undocumented migrants crossing the desert and American Minutemen trying to stop them. The cameras were distributed in pre-addressed envelopes and were collected at a P.O. Box in Arizona. They received over 2000 photographs, the best of which will appear in this book.
