Months of research, many more months filming and editing, this movie tells the story of the Wall and its impact on the flora and fauna spanning over 1,200 miles along the Rio Grande bordering the United States of America and Mexico.

The latest film by John Aldrich, “The River and the Wall,” is a documentary he edited and helped shoot. It tells the story of five friends who descend the Rio Grande on bicycles, horseback, and canoe to examine issues surrounding the border wall. The film premiered at SXSW 2019 and received rave reviews from the Los Angeles Times, the New York Times, Hollywood Reporter, Outside magazine, and a number of others. As of this writing, it currently enjoys a 100% fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes.

John’s website gives more information on feature documentaries he has worked on. These include, “An Unreal Dream,” and “Audubon,” as well as a number of short films and music-themed works including the “Geo Sessions,” a music series he produced, shot and edited for National Geographic.
