Starplex Theaters 14 Lake Worth
6600 NW Loop 820
Ft Worth , TX

Experience the US-Mexico border as you've never seen it before. Five friends embark on a 1,200 mile mountain bike, horse, and canoe journey along the Rio Grande and US-Mexico border to document the landscapes before a border wall is constructed and to explore the affects it would have. Meeting with immigrants, border patrol agents, wildlife biologists, landowners, and congressmen on both sides of the political aisle, the SXSW award-winning documentary dives into a complex and controversial issue that is way too often oversimplified. Help us bring the film and the reality of the border to the big screen by purchasing a ticket before April 25th so that we meet the minimum tickets required by the theater.
