Cinema Studies Michelson Theatre, 721 Broadway, 6th Floor
EL MAR LA MAR (94 min., 2017, Directors: J. P. Sniadecki & Joshua Bonnetta)
A gripping portrait from and about those who brave the perilous journey across the Sonoran Desert to cross from Mexico to the U.S. The film weaves together “border stories” with compelling imagery of the terrain, riddled with items its travelers have left behind.
Post-screening discussion with Directors J. P. Sniadecki & Joshua Bonnetta
