Mexiphobia the documentary film of the impact of the border closing which Buckner Cooke and Nevie Owens produced was selected for an on-line viewers' choice award for the Cinequest Film Festival. The
winning film gets to be part of the festival. Vote by downloading Mexiphobia. You have to download the film in order to vote, but you don't have to actually watch the film on your computer. Hopefully, with every festival mexiphobia gets in it will be more likely you
get to see it on the big screen in a town/city near you. Currently, Mexiphobia will be screening at the Big Sky Documentary Film Festival in Montana. http://www.vuze.com/search?a=SALL&cat=X&ch=X&cs=X&ct=X&page=content%

  I can't say that I enjoyed it but I'm glad I watched it. It is hard to watch such a sad story
about an area that I love so much. I had watery eyes through most of it but then when I saw
the little boy in the red shirt near the end I sort of opened up to  :icon_cry:.

Now some time has passed and I'm just  :pissed:  :pissed: :icon_exclaim:

 I hope this situation can change soon. :crossedfingers: :eusa_pray:

  Voni, I rarely thank people that make me sad and pissed, but I'm thanking you for sharing.

I appreciate your thoughtful response.

You really nailed my feelings too!

Hope more people will download the movie and vote for it. 
The word needs to get out and this short really tells the story of the unfairness of it all.

This should be required viewing for everyone who visits Big Bend.  Same for those in Congress and Washington.

P.S.  Be sure and check the Boquillas photo credits at the end.  Not to mention all of the familiar names in the "thanks" section.

I had to let it install the Azureus program in order to view it.  Took a few minutes, but no problems.  Once the program installed, the video started right up.

Ok, just finished watching this.  Few things upset me, this however, does.  There is a terrible lack of understanding of what's at stake.  I can never understand how we let things get so far.  I for one, will not sit idle to this fact.  I spend enough time on this computer that I can write to anyone who will listen.  We made them have a special topic on the Christmas Mountains, lets make them have one on this. 

just wrote my congressman and the governor...

Apparently 'Mexiphobia' is no longer available for download (!?). I'm suspicious, or is it just my computers incompetence.

I doubt there's any conspiracy. The vuze.com site is basically like youtube but with high resolution videos. There's a MySpace page for it, but I can't view it from work.

Thanks Richard. I can find the trailer in several pages but a search of Vuze shows no results for Mexaphobia. Is the whole film available for download, or are you all referring to just the trailer? Sorry if I'm being a dolt here.

The whole film used to be on vuze.com for free.

I have it saved on a computer at home, but:

A) I don't know where I could download it so you could upload (or view) it and

2) Do I need permission from rfproductions to do that?
I would assume there may be copyright issues. After all, they are charging admission to see it at the film festivals. I have a copy on my PC but when I try to play it I get this:
