Editorial Reviews

Filmed over two years along the US/Mexico border,The Wall interweaves the lives of vigilante group the minutemen, border towns, a sheriff, and two illegal immigrants. Ricardo Martinez's thought-provoking film explores the complicated world of border policy and immigration. Leaving out heavy-handed narration the film tells the story of the fence's construction by following the border residents themselves, as they each learn of the impending plans. Winner of the Audience Award for Best Documentary 2010 at the SF Latino Film Festival. Best Picture at the 2009 Tulipanes Latino Art and Film Festival, and Official Entry at the Newport Beach Film Festival. Go to TheWallDocumentary.com for more info!

5.0 out of 5 stars poignant view of border security January 10, 2011
Verified Purchase
I saw this film at a screening at a public interest law conference last year at Yale Law School where the director spoke. I've seen some other documentary videos on the border and the wall, but this one really does the best job at highlighting and focusing on what it's like for those who live on the border. Well done documentary featuring policy issues, real Americans, and environmental struggles. The film maker strives and succeeds in the portrayal of this difficult topic. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great conversation starter! January 17, 2011
My husband and I watched this documentary last night and thoroughly enjoyed it! We particularly enjoyed the perspective of the local citizens and local enforcment (especially Sheriff Estrada) which brought the subject right into our living room. We've been talking about it ever since and keep coming back to it.
