There are no other films like El mar la mar, which unfolds like a cyclone through the night. American J.P. Sniadecki and Canadian Joshua Bonnetta have made an epic poem in reference to Mexico, whose relationship with its immediate upstairs neighbor has long been fractured. Throughout the film’s broken-up episodes shot on splendid color 16mm, the filmmakers convey the sensation of crossing from one place to another, and provide a deep sense of empathy.
