Webster University Film Series Presents Bombay Beach
April 10, 2012
What: Part documentary, part dance-fiction, Israeli-born Alma Har’el’s debut feature Bombay Beach paints a rich and emotional portrait of the lives of some of California’s absolute poorest. Har’el spent months living at the Salton Sea, capturing the surreal beauty and desolation —without financial backing. Perhaps best known for her work directing music videos for Beirut, the film is graced with original music by Zach Condon as well as Bob Dylan and Beruit. Winner of the Best Documentary Feature at the 2011 Tribeca Film Festival. (Alma Har’el, 2011, USA, 80 min)
