389 Miles Documentary Now on YouTube

Posted By on Mon, Jan 30, 2012 at 4:00 PM

The last time the Tucson Weekly interviewed LuisCarlos Davis in May 2009, his documentary 389 Miles: "Living the Border", had just won the Golden Iguana audience award for best film at the Puerto Vallarta International Film Festival. Since then, Davis' documentary that explores the complexities of life along the Mexico border starting from Douglas, Arizona and ending in San Luis, Sonora, has been seen by audiences overseas and across the country.

Davis said he presented this work at leadership conferences, medical schools, and journalism, media arts, and communication departments, movie theaters, film festivals, jails, juvenile centers, and alternative schools. "All places where people come from different backgrounds and beliefs."

"In these difficult times we are living it is important to increase our points of view on the reality that we are living in our border of Arizona and Mexico," Davis said.

To help that effort, Davis' documentary is now aavailable in its entirety on YouTube. Currently, Davis, who was born in Nogales, Sonora and raised in Noglaes, Arizona, is writing two screenplays. Davis was also recently selected by the Spanish Embassy and Fundacion Carolina as one of 15 Hispanic leaders from the United States to visit Madrid, Bilbao, Vitoria and San Sebastian to learn about the culture, politics, economics and social issues of Spain and explore the international relationship between the U.S and Spain.
