The United States border with Mexico is nearly 2,000 miles. The agency in charge, U.S Customs and Border Protection, protect the border with patrols, and checkpoints throughout the miles of empty desert. They’ve seen and experienced wild things in their years, and filmmaker Greg Kwedar sought to capture some of their stories in “Transpecos.”
We checked out the excellent TRANSPECOS last night at IFFBoston, the review is on its way, but check out this excerpt from the festival Q&A. Director Greg Kwedar talks about what inspired the film.
