On Sunday, June 4, 2023, at 4:00 PM three borderlands films will be showing at the Loft Cinema in Tucson, AZ: 

  • A Wall Runs Through It
  • Ducey’s Boondoggle
  • Prayer Run

The Madrean Archipelago Wildlife Center Fundraiser offers Three Films for our Borderlands

Ducey’s Boondoggle by Tony Heath illustrates through artful collages of starkly contrasting elements, the hideous ironies of life in the Coronado National Forest along the southwestern border. Fusing images from a two hour visit to Camp Ocelot, base camp for the resistance movement, he documents a wall constructed of shipping containers with rage, wit and even humor.

A Wall Runs Through it by ASU School of Sustainability and the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism students Makepeace Sitlhou, Trilce Estrada Olivera and Hakob Karapetyan share the shipping container travesty through the stories and documentation of border wall activists.

Prayer Run by ASU Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication students John Leos, Nellija Locmele, Tyler Bender and Megan Swing documents a 60-mile run by youth of the Brophy Native American Club and tribal members who unite in prayer for Oak Flat, San Carlos Apache sacred site threatened with destruction by the Resolution Copper mining project.
