What are the stories that dominate the public narrative about life on the border? Who tells them? Who listens? Which stories aren’t being told? What are the perspectives of young people on culture, politics, people, heritage, everyday life in Ambos Nogales. This is the heart of DocuNogales, youth documenting stories of where they live.
