Palo Alto, CA
Unlike any documentary you’ve seen before, director Alma Har’el’s first feature film reveals three lives teetering on the brink of the American dream in the Salton Sea. This triptych of manhood at its turning points is composed of a young boy diagnosed with bipolar disorder, a black teenager who has fled Los Angeles in order to avoid the gang violence that killed his cousin and an elderly man who once worked in oil fields. Accompanying gorgeous images that feel more like poetry than documentary and choreographed dance, the film’s haunting soundtrack is by Beirut and Bob Dylan.
Total Running Time: 80 minutes
