Doc Spot Film Series: As I Walk Through the Valley

As I Walk Through the Valley unfolds over four decades of music in the southernmost tip of Texas: The Rio Grande Valley. The valley is the often-overlooked river-delta that recently finds itself as a central talking point in the national conversation about our southern border. As I Walk Through the Valley examines the histories and stories of musicians playing in the underground scenes throughout the decades, as told by the people who lived it.
