El Muro (The Wall) foregrounds the shaping of the landscape by the resistance of its original inhabitants, the Lipan Apache/Nde’, who have lived, and continue to live, on their traditional land despite colonial, imperial, and postcolonial efforts to dispossess them of it. The focal point is the struggle of Dr. Eloisa G. Tamez against the US Department of Homeland Security that implemented eminent domain to seize a portion of her own Lipan Apache ancestral land in El Calaboz Rancheria.

DIRECTORS and PRODUCERS: Ramon and Rosalva Resendiz (in attendance)
