Representing the sensory experience of landscape, fauna and climate, this anthropological essay about border crossings explores the harrowing journeys of undocumented migrants crossing the inhospitable and arid Sonoran Desert—a strategic point of passage located between Mexico and the USA.
Combining chilling audio interviews and 16mm images of the Sonoran Desert, this engrossing documentary offers a damning portrait of the U.S. and Mexico border crisis. From directors Joshua Bonnetta and J.P. Sniadecki, El mar la mar_ is an immersive portrait of the conditions endured by migrants.
