Border Cantos Film Series » The Borders Trilogy with filmmaker Alex Rivera
The Borders Trilogy (2003) tells three small stories to illuminate a much larger one: the contradictions of a world order in which products freely cross borders that people may not.The first story, Love on the Line, depicts a transnational family picnic across a surreal wall that runs into the ocean. The second story, Container City, is set in an entirely different border town: Newark, New Jersey. The final story, A Visible Border, dwells on a single, haunting x-ray image. . After the film, join us for a live Skype discussion with filmmaker Alex Rivera. Rivera is a filmmaker who, for the past 20 years, has been telling visually adventurous Latino stories. His work has won multiple awards at the Sundance Film Festival and has been screened at The Berlin International Film Festival, the Museum of Modern Art, The Guggenheim, The Getty, Lincoln Center, PBS, Telluride, and other international venues.
