On May 4, 2022, Sky Island Alliance and allies hosted a virtual screening of the border wall documentary “American Scar,” produced by The New Yorker.
Watch the 13-minute documentary and post-film Q&A below.
Border wall construction and the law waivers that made it possible have hurt communities in the region and devastated the environment. This film and panel cover these issues in depth.
The Sky Island region is a special place in the world where an incredible diversity of wildlife like jaguars and black bears depend on moving freely between forested mountains to find food and water. Now a border wall cuts through their homes, severing waterways and stopping them in their tracks. We seek to tell their stories and show what’s at stake in our beautiful borderlands, so we can build a future where wildlife and people thrive.
