El Mar La Mar

Joshua Bonnetta & J.P. Sniadecki
2017, 16mm/digital file, 94 min.

El Mar La Mar approximates the experience of having no choice but traversing the SonoranDesert on the border between Mexico and the United States. Polyphonic at its core, thefilm continuously transitions between anecdotes, modes of (non)human communication, compositional and sonic strategies, and the filmic rendering of borders that are barely borderlike.
