BorderLine

Sep. 2 at 9pm ET/6pm PT

BorderLine explores the aftermath of the 9/11 terrorist attacks as experienced by ordinary people living and working along the Canada-U.S. border. The film follows award-winning documentary filmmaker and journalist Daniel Sekulich as he treks across North America from the Atlantic to the Pacific on both sides of the international line. Sekulich and his intrepid crew seek out an assortment of characters along their journey and describe how their lives have been altered by 9/11. They encounter fishermen, shop owners, truckers, Native leaders, immigrants, border officials, former RCMP officers, and anyone else with a story to tell.

BorderLine takes viewers on a scenic and thought-provoking, cross-country journey that reveals the ever changing relationship between Canada and the United States in the post 9/11 era. The film explores the significant changes that have occurred and considers how recent initiatives like the Beyond The Border agreement threaten our privacy, civil liberties, and perhaps even Canadian sovereignty during the next decade.
