SHARED TERRITORY – Borderlands is an exploration of a landscape that has largely been misunderstood through the lens of distant media and political narratives. This is the story of the Camino del Diablo, a historic route connecting the border town of Sonoyta, Mexico, and Yuma, Arizona.
This film wouldn’t have been possible without the people who were willing the share their time and stories. We encourage everyone who watched this film to continue the journey into the Sonoran Desert and there’s no better way to start than through the work of the voices within this film.
