“…fascinating experimental documentary…

immersive, sensorially complex…as

concerned with the possibilities of the

film medium as they are with this particular

subject…abstract cinema that packs a punch…”

—The New York Times

Emerging from the ethos of Harvard’s

Sensory Ethnography Lab, J.P. Sniadecki’s

attentive documentary approach mixes

perfectly with Joshua Bonnetta’s meditations

on the materiality of film.

—Cinema Guild

El Mar La Mar is an abstract look at the Sonoran Desert on the U.S.–Mexico border. J.P. Sniadecki and Joshua Bonnetta combine oral histories from the area with hand-processed 16mm images of natural elements and belongings left behind by travelers. A sonically rich soundtrack adds to the eerie atmosphere.
