The Tinaja Trail screening at Arizona International Film Festival

I am pleased to announce that my documentary, The Tinaja Trail, will screen in Tucson at the Arizona International Film Festival this Sunday, April 13th at 3:00pm (@ The Screening Room, 127 East Congress).  The film documents the work of a number of Tucson area organizations (including the Samaritans, Humane Borders, and Kino Border initiative), and was filmed along the U.S.-Mexico border from Nogales, Arizona to San Diego, California. I am very excited that I will get to hold a panel discussion with members of the cast, who will also be present on Sunday after the screening, to talk about the issues raised in the film, especially those confronting the Tucson area.

My documentary at ZKM | Museum of Contemporary Art


I’m thrilled to announce that a segment from my upcoming documentary film will be exhibited at the ZKM | Museum of Contemporary Art in Karlsruhe, Germany, beginning this Friday, Dec. 13th.  The video, which contains excerpts from the film that are primarily focused on the Transborder Immigrant Tool (TBT), will play alongside the TBT as part of an exhibit entitled “global aCtIVISm” that runs until March 30, 2014.  The TBT is an artwork produced by the Electronic Disturbance Theater that imagines leading migrants to water in desolate regions of the borderlands while also reciting poetry.
