On Thursday nights this summer, venture to The Jule for experimental and creative films, free of charge and open to everyone. Each selection is programmed with “Radical Naturalism.” Award-winning filmmakers explore new relationships with nature, image-making techniques, interview subjects, and cultural investigations.

El Mar La Mar

An enthralling journey through the Sonoran Desert on the U.S.-Mexico Border, El Mar La Mar is an experience unlike anything you've seen, heard, or felt before. The filmmakers weave together sublime 16mm shots of nature and weather phenomena, animals, people, and tracks left behind with a polyphonic soundtrack, creating a cinematographic exploration of the desert habitat - a multi-faceted panorama of a highly politicized stretch of land.
