  • A migrant father and son run out of water while crossing the desert border and must seek help from a ranch house
  • Kent Bassett became interested in filmmaking as a teenager and first studied directing at age 16. While completing his Bachelor's degree in history and political science at Swarthmore College, he continued to pursue film through a course on documentary production. He went on to pursue a Masters of Fine Arts in film production at Chapman University. During his second year he directed Twisting Fate, a light-hearted comedy that screened at the Lake Arrowhead Film Festival and the Siouxland Film Festival. The Line is his largest production to date and his most personal. Growing up in Arizona, Kent was surrounded by debates about immigration and the Arizona-Mexico border. The Line is an exploration of the lives of those Arizonians most directly affected by the border - migrant workers and ranchers
