Dans Borderlands, Art21 suit un groupe d’artistes – Tanya Aguiñiga, Rafael Lozano-Hemmer, Richard Misrach, Postcommodity – lors de leurs interventions le long de la frontière américano-mexicaine. Leurs démarches interreliées forment une réponse percutante à l’un des moments phares qu’a traversés cette région. Ce film explore subtilement comment l’art contemporain révèle le nouveau et l’inattendu, et invite à remettre en question les idées préconçues sur des endroits du monde couverts par les médias de masse. Ultimement, ce documentaire suscite un élan d’empathie à l’égard de ce territoire limitrophe malmené, l’un des plus scrutés d’Amérique du Nord.
