Border Wall experience comes to San Antonio

Border mayors, angry homeowners, vigilantes, migrating humanity: shake ‘em up in a bag and tumble ‘em into the editing machine that is documentary filmmaker Ricardo Martinez. What you get is The Wall, everything we wanted to tell you about fear and loathing on La Frontera but were afraid to ask, we’re sure.

Martinez is promising the thing “won’t be boring,” but honestly, as long as the voiceover speaks the truth about thick-necked/wee-dicked vigilantes and our xenophobic politos, many of us would happily sit through two-hours of nothing but limp laundry on the line.

Thankfully, judging from the trailer below, we don’t have to worry about keeping our retinas entertained.

San Antonio will have the opportunity to view Martinez’s production when it comes to the Guadalupe Theater on July 18. Tickets are a deal at $5. Plus there will be a Q&A with Martinez and a reception following the film.




Oh, and earlier that same day you can catch the third installment of The Guadalupe Center’s free summer movie series, Under the Same Moon (Bajo la Misma Luna).

That’s showing at 1:00 pm as part of the Cine en el Barrio movie making workshop youth program.

“This film also deals with border and immigration issues and is a great precursor for the evening program,” promises John Castro, the Center’s marketing director.

That’s enough warning for you socially conscious cinephiles. Now you just have to ferret away 33 cents a day and show up with all your rightly incensed senses ready to rumble.
