Hike The Line · Hosted by Sunflower Theatre at KSJD
Hike the Line follows two long-distance backpackers, Tenny Ostrem and Claire Wernstedt-Lynch, on the first ever thru-hike of the 2,000-mile U.S.-Mexico border. For 175 days, these two women persevere through the most difficult adventure of their lives while gaining a unique perspective on America’s controversial immigration policies. Challenges around safety protocol and campsite selection tax the most valuable resource they have, each other. The hikers’ many encounters with activists, ranchers, Border Patrol, and migrants challenge their expectations about this highly contested region of our country.
Directed by local filmmaker Corey Robinson. There will be a Q & A with the director and Tenny Ostrem following the film
