Overview

President Donald Trump’s idea for a “great big, beautiful wall” on the U.S.- Mexican border is sheer demagoguery. Josh Begley proves it by incorporating 200,000 satellite images into an animated aerial journey from one end of the 1954-mile long border to the other. It takes almost six minutes, which proves to be plenty of time to reveal the incapacity of DJT. The film is a mesmerizing meditation about the vast scale of the Earth as observed from the sky, the technology that enables us to see it, the artifice of national borders and, yes, thanks to the title, the deceit of certain politics.
