EL MAR LA MAR (94 min., 2017)
Screening and Discussion

Wednesday, April 25 at 6:00 pm
Michelson Theater
721 Broadway, 6th Floor

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 and Joshua Bonnetta.

Co-sponsors: Center for Latin American and Caribbean Studies, Hemispheric Institute of Performance and Politics.
