Greg Rainoff

After many years as a successful visual effects artist on the popular Star Trek franchise, Greg Rainoff embarked on a bike ride across the Tibetan Plateau, arriving in Nepal in time to witness the culmination of the Maoist Insurgency. Rather than returning to Hollywood, he instead turned his talents to documentary film making. His first endeavor, El Muro, chronicles the human and environmental consequences of the Tactical Infrastructure Project (better known as the Border Wall) between San Diego and Tijuana, focusing primarily on its impacts on the Tijuana Estuary, the largest intact estuarine system in Southern California.
