Discover Documentaries: Featuring Cindy Meehl Films
April 27 @ 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm
This is a virtual program.
Join us for this unique opportunity to learn about the art of creating a documentary with award-winning director and producer, Cindy Meehl. Over the course of several months, we will view three of Cindy’s documentaries on our own time, then meet virtually to discuss them with her and a special guest involved in each of her films. This month watch The River and the Wall on your own time, available to view free on Hoopla and on Amazon Prime. Then we’ll gather on Zoom for discussion and Q&A with Cindy and Ben Masters, director and a character from the documentary.
The River and the Wall follows five friends on an immersive adventure through the unknown wilds of the Texas borderlands as they travel 1200 miles from El Paso to the Gulf of Mexico on horses, mountain bikes, and canoes. They set out to document the borderlands and explore the potential impacts of a wall on the natural environment, but as the wilderness gives way to the more populated and heavily trafficked Lower Rio Grande Valley, they come face-to-face with the human side of the immigration debate and enter uncharted emotional waters.
