Thu, September 9 @ 6:30pm
2313 Red River Street, Austin
FREE to the public
Director/Producer Rory Kennedy and Producer Keven McAlester will be in attendance!
In October 2006, the United States government decided to build a 700 mile fence along its Mexican border. Three years and $3.1 billion later, the film investigates the impact of the project, revealing how its stated goals-containing illegal immigration, cracking down on drug trafficking, and protecting America from terrorists-have given trafficking, and protecting America from terrorists-have given way to unforeseen consequences.
Following the film, there will be a discussion with Rory Kennedy and Keven McAlester.
Reservations are required and are taken on a first-come, first-served basis until we have reached capacity.
