Karl W. Hoffman- LIVING ON THE BORDER documentary ready
The Documentary is done (please view the trailer below) and after 4 years the border story is about to be told. How we as a society progressed though this governmental/ humanitarian maze with only the sensationalism of a hungry and manipulative press is a horrendous injustice to not only the American people, but the global cultures inspired by the dreams of a democracy that we as a nation have portrayed to the world. What happened here on the Border at the beginning of this century and why.
For a signed copy of this self funded documentary (95 min) on DVD please send a check for $25 that includes shipping to:

Dear Friends an Border Associates,
It has been quite a journey, but after 4 years of covering both sides of the American / Mexican Border, I have finally finished my feature length (95 min) documentary. This is a multimedia production film including photography, video and narration. Being totally self funded, it required me to study video and sound editing along the way. Most of the summer was spent editing and writing the script for my narration. As I uncovered the vast intricacies and experienced the emotion and brutality of the border debacle, waded in after the media had sensationalized segments for salable stories to root out the many unknown facts and hidden agendas of both the major and minor players, not to mention the endless hours on hose back, foot and 4×4, in the air and on raids with BP, as well as in the field with humanitarian groups, it occurred to me that this was culminating into a form of philosophical sculpture. It became a mirror for humanity, to show us just how, through a detailed account, we deal with major issues. No matter where in the world they occur, or in the time line of history one goes, the formula seams to be the same. Providing the information about what really happened here on the border at the turn of this century with compassion and objectivity will hopefully lead to future generations learning from our actions rather than following our example. This is my gift to humanity. I would like nothing more than to send a signed copy of this documentary on DVD to every one who would like a piece of our history. I must however ask for $17 to cover production and shipping. This is the first run and the best I could do for all of you who have been so supportive. Donations are also gracefully accepted and appreciated so I may send copies to Washington. I am still available for lectures and exhibits, or if you would like to show this documentary in your school, at your function or fundraiser, please feel free to contact me.
If you would like a first run signed copy or would like one sent as a gift, please send your check or e check for $17 to:
Don’t forget to include the mailing address you would like it to go to.

RITA OF THE SKY played to sold-out houses at the 2009 Arizona International Film Festival in April and received the “Best Feature Documentary” and “Best of Arizona” awards.
RITA OF THE SKY is a story that prowls the edges between cultures. A judge sends a mysterious woman to a Kansas mental hospital because, to officials, her language resembles the “guttural noises” of a mentally ill person. After 10 years, they learn she is a Tarahumara Indian from the Copper Canyon in Mexico, who had been speaking her native language all along. She had walked 1500 miles from her canyon village to Kansas. Emerging from captivity, she can no longer speak at all because of the drugs given to her in the hospital.
