Ay Mariposa 2019
Description: Ay Mariposa says a storyline of three characters in the Lower Rio Grande Valley of Texas whose lives are upended by plans to build a US-Mexico border wall. As the director of the National Butterfly Center, Marianna Trevino Wright has become a leader of wall resistance in the Valley, a position that has resulted in violent threats from pro-wall factions and an emotional odyssey as she tries to navigate the ever-shifting sands of border policy. Zulema Hernandez, a life-long migrant worker, immigrant and nice grandmother, has been a dedicated advocate for all migrants, both wild and human-kind. Meanwhile the butterfly, la mariposa, wars its own everyday war for survival in a landscape where more than 95 percent of its habitat is long gone and much of what remains lies directly in the path of the wall. Ay Mariposa documents every characters' fierce commitment to home, justice, wild beauty and the future of the US-Mexico borderlands.

Jagal #

Sink or Swim #

Released 9/30/1990

Ay Mariposa Reviews:

This is an nice movie about ongoing efforts to stop border walls from ripping through border communities and border ecosystems. The filmmakers have an intimate knowledge of the borderlands and the folks who live there, and that comes through. Anyone who wants to really understand what will be lost if Trump gets his wall, and how those of us who live along the border are fighting to protect our home, could watch this movie. I live here and I have never seen a truer representation of my home.


This poignant movie is an antidote to the false narrative of the risky out-of-control southern border. It depicts the reality of border communities and the borderlands-the rich culture, the secure towns and close-knit communities, along with the nice wildlife diversity in this subtropical region. But it also describes the trauma that has been the inflicted on the folks and the land because of militarization and border walls.


So often, we lose sight of the true people, the true territories that would be shattered by the border wall. This pretty movie makes it private again. This movie delivered me tears, rage, and most risky of all, hope.
