KBI Documentary:
Two filmmakers 7.5 minutes 8 days

Karl W Hoffman is internationally recognized for his extensive photographic work on the US/Mexico border, his lectures and his newly released feature length film Living on the Border. There is a 30 year age difference between us, but a magical phenomenon happened through this friendship, both spiritually and technically. We are both bringing our work to a higher level.

Christian Rodriguez is a talented young filmmaker with an extensive technical and artistic background. The son of a documented migrant mother, he was born Los Angles and raised in Northern California, in the heart of agricultural industry, this has given him a compassionate insight to the Hispanic community. Christian is currently working on his own feature length documentary Citizen Me: The Forgotten Class.

Two Artists come together in Southern Arizona, on the US/Mexico Border for 8 days to work on a very special 7.5-minute short documentary. Honing their skills and combining their diverse cultural backgrounds they straddle the border and bring together a heartwarming view of The Kino Border Initiative, people helping people through their darkest moment. This a place that the main stream media has continually sensationalized and exploited, but here, there are good people putting aside political agendas and offering multicultural camaraderie while giving a simple meal and spiritual support to innocent people caught in the world wind of collateral damage in the border debacle.
