THE RIVER AND THE WALL

Feature Documentary directed by Ben Masters
Hillary Pierce, Producer

The River and the Wall is an adventure story that immerses new audiences in the unknown wilds of the Texas borderlands as it follows a team of five friends traveling from El Paso to the Gulf of Mexico on horses, mountain bikes, and canoes.  Conservation filmmaker Ben Masters realizes the urgency of documenting the last remaining wilderness in Texas as the threat of new border wall construction looms ahead. Masters recruits NatGeo Explorer Filipe DeAndrade, ornithologist Heather Mackey, river guide Austin Alvarado, and conservationist Jay Kleberg to join him on the two-and-a-half-month journey down 1,200 miles of the U.S.-Mexico border. The expedition team sets out to document the borderlands and explore the potential impacts of a border wall on the environment, but as the wilderness gives way to the more populated and heavily trafficked Lower Rio Grande Valley, they come face to face with the human side of the border wall debate and enter uncharted emotional waters.
