Boca Chica | Official Trailer

Season 9 Episode 906 | 13s

Unrestricted access to beaches is a public right in Texas. But for the little known, magical, and untamed stretch of beach called Boca Chica, that right is curtailed when SpaceX takes flight. Boca Chica uncovers the mesmerizing beauty of this fragile coastline and the fight for free access for its longtime visitors whose memories and spirituality are rooted deep among the sandy shorelines.

Support for Reel South is made possible by the National Endowment for the Arts, the Center for Asian American Media and by SouthArts.
