On the Divide follows the story of three Latinx people living in McAllen, Texas who, despite their views, are connected by the most unexpected of places: the last abortion clinic on the U.S./Mexico border. As threats to the clinic and their personal safety mount, these three are forced to make decisions they never could have imagined.
On the Divide had its world premiere at the 2021 Tribeca Film Festival to a sold out crowd and received a standing ovation. The film has continued to screen across the US at a number of in-person and virtual festivals including rePRO Film Festival, Sidewalk Film Festival, the Heartland Film Festival, etc and took top documentary honors at the Santa Fe Independent & New Orleans Film Festival. On the Divide will have its broadcast premiere on POV | PBS and Latino Public Broadcasting on April 18th.
