I want to be clear - this documentary is in large part about the border wall, and how it would affect the Lower Canyons we floated - though the proposed wall is far more than just an environmental issue and the border wall is not even the biggest threat the Lower Canyons faces (that's climate change and lack of water).
But at the same time, it is as difficult to know what's going on with the wall as it is with everything else in the country. If you're having trouble keeping up, here's a few of the best articles out of the hundreds I've been reading:
While I have no idea what's going on with the border wall, I'm going to keep working on this documentary. If the wall is built, I want this film to show what parts of the border used to be like. If the wall isn't built, I want to show how much we saved.
So keep on watching this blog, and remember that when we talk about the border wall, we're talking about an area that looks like this.
