Vigilantes? Outlaws? Or just red-blooded patriots? Armed and tireless, the self-appointed watchdogs of the U.S./Mexico border are taking the illegal immigration issue into their own hands. Filmed over four years, this intimate and open-minded documentary sucks you into the conflicted lives of scrappy San Diego soccer moms and eccentric old-timers in mountaintop trailer homes, who are in a constant struggle to secure the sprawling border, while maintaining their own sanity in an isolating and dangerous landscape. Regardless of your political beliefs you will find “The Minutemen” charged with real people in a real world with real concerns.
