I received a message from our friend Karla today, about what her boyfriend Steve is up to this summer. He’s a public-school teacher, and is currently working to produce a documentary titled John Doe: Mexican, on border crossers in the Southwest.
Sounds like an interesting project, which he will be blogging about:
John Doe Mexican is an hour-long documentary that captures the struggle to value human life, even in death.
The dead have no names here. For Mexican border crossers, Southern Arizona’s Sonoran desert is an unforgiving and, all too often, murderous landscape. John Doe Mexican follows a handful of people who have made it their business to end these desert deaths and to name John Doe.
Karla said that he is looking for feedback and questions, so feel free to leave a comment on his blog.
