Synopsis: Ay Mariposa is the work of long-time borderlands documentarian Krista Schlyer and award-winning filmmakers Jenny Nichols and Morgan Heim, who have followed the events unfolding in South Texas since President Donald Trump was elected and vowed to complete the border barrier that has been under intermittent construction since the 1990s.
Schlyer, the film’s director and author of the acclaimed 2012 book Continental Divide: Wildlife, People and the Border Wall, has documented the rise of walls on the United States’ border for the past decade.
