Conservation filmmaker Ben Masters talks to Diana Nguyen about The River and the Wall.
The film follows five friends on an immersive adventure through the unknown wilds of the Texas borderlands as they travel 1,200 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.
