A heartbreaking yet hopeful look at three characters impacted by current border policy

What a beautiful film this is! The cinematography is breathtaking! The narrator's description of the butterfly is both informative and magical. How the stories of the two women protagonists are intertwined with the life cycle of the butterfly is genius. For those of us living on the US-Mexico border this is a significant representation of our homeland and the struggle we face. I hope it is widely viewed.

Beautiful film about the struggle to stop the border wall

This is an amazing film about ongoing efforts to stop border walls from ripping through border communities and border ecosystems. The filmmakers have an intimate knowledge of the borderlands and the people who live there, and that comes through. Anyone who wants to really understand what will be lost if Trump gets his wall, and how those of us who live along the border are fighting to protect our home, should watch this movie. I live here and I have never seen a truer representation of my home.

This movie will change the way you think about the border

Ay Mariposa is a hard-hitting expose of the totally bogus approach the U.S. government has taken to its border with Mexico. If you thought the wall was a good idea, you won't anymore after watching this film. You hear straight from the mouths of the women harmed most by walls built willy-nilly across beautiful landscapes and through impoverished communities. You also come to understand the life of the butterfly, how natural its migration is, and how it's just as natural for people to migrate. Our border policies are shown to be a political farce that picks on the little guy for the benefit of huge companies and greedy politicians. Ay Mariposa shows all this without being preachy or overbearing. Instead, it is utterly stunning nature photography with up-close-and-personal interviews with people who are fighting tooth-and-nail to keep it out of their backyards and off their favorite nature preserves.
