Special Screening: “The Wall” @ Newseum | Washington | District of Columbia | United States

The Newseum presents a special screening of “The Wall,” a documentary from the Arizona Republic and USA Today Network which explores the impact of President Trump’s promise to build a wall between the United States and Mexico.

The documentary was part of the 2018 Pulitzer Prize-winning reporting package, “The Wall: Untold Stories, Unintended Consequences,” in which reporters spent months traveling the length of the U.S.-Mexico border by land and air, documenting the possible impact of a wall on security, life, commerce, smuggling and property rights.

In awarding the 2018 Pulitzer Prize for explanatory reporting, the judging committee lauded the project for “vivid and timely reporting that masterfully combined text, video, podcasts and virtual reality to examine, from multiple perspectives, the difficulties and unintended consequences of fulfilling President Trump’s pledge to construct a wall along the U.S. border with Mexico.”

Following the screening, Arizona Republic investigative editor Michael Squires and U.S.-Mexico border reporter Rafael Carranza discuss the project in a conversation moderated by SiriusXM talk show host Nayyera Haq.
