The River and the Wall follows five friends as they travel from El Paso to the Gulf of Mexico on horses, mountain bikes, and canoes. They set out to document the beauty of the borderlands and explore the potential impacts of a border wall on the natural environment, but in the heavily trafficked Lower Rio Grande Valley, they come face-to-face with the human side of the immigration debate.

Directed by Ben Masters, 2019, 109 minutes.
