What would 2,000 miles of a US-Mexico border fence actually look like?

The US-Mexico border fence, a major topic in the 2016 US presidential race, is a sprawling structure winding across some 2,000 miles between San Diego in California and Brownsville in Texas. It is also roughly two-thirds incomplete. Best of Luck with the Wall, an imaginative, dizzying short documentary that uses 200,000 satellite images downloaded from Google Maps, makes clear the sheer magnitude of the US-Mexico border, and the mindbogglingly massive challenges any full border fence would face in separating the two countries. The documentary is a collaboration between The Intercept, Field of Vision and the US internet artist Josh Begley.

Director: Josh Begley
