Harpur Cinema presents 'El Mar La Mar' (Joshua Bonnetta and J.P. Sniadecki, 2017, USA)

Special Event! On Friday. February 15, Joshua Bonnetta will be present to introduce his film and answer your questions

Shot on 16mm film in the Sonoran Desert at the US-Mexico border, a popular but extremely dangerous route to attempt unauthorized entry across the border, El Mar La Mar, an experimental documentary by Joshua Bonnetta and J.P Sniadecki, addresses the issues of migration and explores the materiality of the celluloid medium, which becomes one of the main subjects. “Though its juxtapositions of human horror with natural splendor, through harrowing affective accumulation, reveal a hostile landscape indifferent to the concerns of those passing through it” (Matt Turner, BOMB Magazine).

Nominated: Hong Kong International Film Festival, Golden Firebird Award – International Cinephile Society Awards, Best Documentary
