El Mar La Mar

An imersive experimental doc shot on 16mm of the physical and psychological landscape seperating USA and Mexico


Sun 16 June // 11:00 / External

Made by alumni of the Harvard Sensory Ethnography Laboratory, El mar la mar (named for a poem by Spain’s Rafael Alberti) was shot on 16mm over a period of years in the Sonoran Desert betwen Mexico and South Western USA. It combines anthropological filmmaking interests with multiple modes associated with the cinematic avant-garde, including sonic experimentation, observational portraiture, landscape photography and oral histories of both personal and political import. A mesmerising and haunting essay-film.
