Synopsis

The sun beats down mercilessly on all those who cross the Sonoran Desert between Mexico and the United States. They have no choice but to take this extremely dangerous route. El mar la mar masterfully weaves together sublime 16-mm shots of nature and weather phenomena, animals, people and the tracks they leave behind with a polyphonic soundtrack, creating a cinematographic exploration of the desert habitat, a multi-faceted panorama of a highly politicised stretch of land.

One of the best films of the year! And one of the best examples how sensitivity and conceptual thinking can come together and create new meanings.
