BOMBAY BEACH

  • Release Year: 2011
  • Runtime: 80 minutes
  • Directed By: Alma Har'el

Using a stylized amalgam of nonfiction and choreographed dance set to the music of Beirut and Bob Dylan, Bombay Beach revisits this poetically fruitful terrain to find a motley cast including a bipolar seven-year-old, a lovelorn football star, and an octogenarian poet-prophet—creating a moving, distinctive, and slightly surreal documentary experience. | Read More
