The New Yorker goes inside the southern border towns that separate the USA from Mexico in this documentary.

For the people living here, seeing huge fences everywhere is a normality. Armed guards, car checks and watch towers are an everyday sight. Despite having all of here to separate the two countries, people from Mexico and the US meet everyday, as thousands of people cross the border legally to go to their jobs. It’s an odd situation where two communities are so intermingled whilst also being totally cut off from each other.

In this doc, we meet some of the people who are trying to change perceptions around the ideas of borders and remind people that they are a man made thing. Some look to celebrate the nature that both countries share, as wildlife knows no borders. Others look to unite people. In one touching scene in the doc, we see an architect install a see-saw where children from one side of the border can use it with children on the other side. It’s a moving doc that reminds us that borders aren’t a natural things.
