El Mar La Mar

  •   Joshua Bonnetta, J.P. Sniadecki
  •   United States
  •   Documentary


Shot in the wastelands of the Sonoran Desert on 16mm, avant-garde filmmakers Bonnetta and Sniadecki (The Iron Ministry) examine U.S.-Mexican border relations from a mythopoetic perspective. Mixing sublime shots of forbidding landscapes, a soundtrack combining harrowing testimonies and the calls of the wild, and striking images of things left behind in the sandscapes—backpacks, water bottles, jackets—El mar la mar focuses on the traces and timelessness of the refugee crisis.
