“Save the date folks. Sunday June 4th in Tucson at the Loft. Film about the container wall struggle and eventual victory!”




“Featuring a panel discussion and Q&A with the filmmakers!

The Madrean Archipelago Wildlife Center Fundraiser offers Three Films for our Borderlands:

Ducey’s Big, Stupid, Idiotic Boondoggle: A Shipping Container Wall? illustrates through artful collages of starkly contrasting elements the hideous ironies of life in the Coronado National Forest along the southwestern border. Fusing images from a two hour visit to Camp Ocelot, base camp for the resistance movement, the film documents a wall constructed of shipping containers with rage, wit and even humor. (Dir. by Tony Heath, 2022, USA, 9 mins., G)

A Wall Runs Through It shares the shipping container travesty through the stories and documentation of border wall activists. A film by students from the ASU School of Sustainability and the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism. (Dir. by Makepeace Sitlhou, Trilce Estrada Olvera, and Hakob Karapetyan, 2023, USA, 9 mins., G)

Prayer Run to Save Oak Flat documents a 60-mile run by youth of the Brophy Native American Club and tribal members who unite in prayer for Oak Flat, a San Carlos Apache sacred site threatened with destruction by the Resolution Copper mining project. A film by ASU students. (Dir. by Nellija Locmele, Tyler Bender, John Leos, and Megan Swing, 2023, USA, 10 mins., G)

This is a rental of The Loft Cinema, presented by The Madrean Archipelago Wildlife Center.”
