Adventures in Films: Beyond the Mainstream series
Tectonics and El Mar La Mar are two films examining issues related to the border wall between the US and Mexico.
Tectonics. The Mexico-US border is the most frequently traversed international border in the world. Tectonics explores this 2,000-mile divide and the tensions between stunning natural environments and man-made structures that seem to impose their will on them.
El Mar La Mar allows the politically contested abstractions of the border and illegal immigration to take shape in vivid sensory detail, suggesting new possibilities for the political documentary.
$5. Stay afterward for refreshments and discussion.
