The Border Film Project

BorderFilm

I came across an interesting site today called the Border Film Project which is trying to shed light one of our country’s most heated issues – immigration. The project is run by three people including Weiden + Kennedy Rudy Adler who are trying to convey perspectives from both sides of the literal fence by handing out 73 disposable cameras to undocumented migrants and the Minutemen guards trying to prevent them from crossing our borders.

The project recently finished and the nearly 2,000 photos have been posted to the site with statistics, and other information. The project also comes in book form and that is being sold in several places including Amazon.com and American Apparel worldwide. The artists have also been taking the show on the road with exhibitions around the country.
