Below is Another Side of the Border, a documentary produced by Austin Counts, Curtis Prendergast, and Kirsten Boele. Work on the documentary began in January 2010 and involved traveling to various places in the Arizona / Sonora borderlands, including Yuma, Ariz., the Tohono O’odham reservation, the Colorado River Delta, and the border cities of Ambos Nogales and San Luis.
The purpose of the documentary is to shed light on aspects of the border that are rarely covered by the local and national news media. Three stories were chosen: the relationship between the Tohono O’odham Nation and the international border, water rights along the lower Colorado River, and trade through the border city of Nogales.
Each of the stories includes a description of the historical evolution that led to the current situation on the border.
The documentary, which runs at 26 minutes, is broken up into five chapters below. Enjoy.
