Jun 24

(Peter Bo Rappmund, 2011, United States/Mexico, Blu-ray, 60 min)

Monday, Jun 24 at 06:30PM

While others talk, Peter Bo Rappmund watches. His sharp gaze has never been more welcome or refreshing than in Tectonics, when he visits the place that's on most every American's lipsour border with Mexico. Tectonics interrupts the recent deluge of immigration documentaries with a story that is visual rather than dogmatic, its stranger-than-fiction shots surveying the landscape of the border. Pitting our social images of the border against the area's natural history, Rappmund dares us to do what is most difficult in our charged political culture: challenge the ideas and myths that affirm our nationhood.
