“Walking The Line” screening

Controversy usually follows me around. Many of you know that. Well, here’s some more, on the big screen in Atlanta.

IMAGE Film & Video Center and the Martin Luther King, Jr. National Historic Site DREAM Series present:
WALKING THE LINE Thursday, December 15, 2005 at 7:30pm

Thanks to Atlanta’s Image Film and Video for the email. Here’s the synopsis of that documentary:

WALKING THE LINE offers a harrowing view of the chaos, absurdity, and senseless deaths along the U.S.-Mexico border through private citizens who are taking the law into their own hands. Southern Arizona, a region celebrated for its history of lawlessness, has become the most highly trafficked area for immigrants in the world – and one of the most dangerous. A shift in border policy forces migrants to cross the unforgiving desert where thousands die; those who make it face volatile civilian militias. The film explores the front lines of what many fatigue-wearing, self-styled warriors dub a “border war.” A discussion will follow the screening.”

Volatile Civilian Militias? Hmm. Okay then. I’ll save the rest for my personal site and spare you all. Have a look at the film if you’re available.

    Hmmm, glad they are taking an objective view of a serious situation instead of resorting to hyperbole…”thousands dead in the desert” etc.
    Plus, they are not immigrants they are illegal aliens.
    Might as well be a movie about burglars breaking into your home and have them complain about “private citizens taking the law into their own hands.”
    Crud, I thought they were showing the Johnny Cash movie.
