"Being lost in the desert transforms into being lost in the cinema. The senses struggle to adjust, becoming attuned and opened to the sights and sounds of the vast, sometimes mystical space. Joshua Bonnetta and J.P. Sniadecki's film teaches viewers to read the signs of the desert by reading signs of the film. We discover an indifferent place, as stories of migrants crossing the border from Mexico into the U.S. face an unforgiving landscape. A fierce but enriching experience."

"Poem of the deafening silence. Verses of shadows, of life, of death. A tragic ode to a non-place replete with traces and fragments of temporary or painfully permanent passages. Visual and aural clues meticulously placed in the narrative path of this documentary record of an invisible reality - of nameless souls, of bodies without matter or place - which culminates in a nonlinear picture of the most absolute totality. The sublime representation of a timeless trauma, of extreme pertinence in the current socio-political context. For these reasons, we award El mar la mar, by J.P. Sniadecki and Joshua Bonetta."
